Southern California residents enjoyed unseasonably warm temperatures as they flocked to beaches on Saturday, but they should be prepared for a cool-down to hit the Southland by the middle of next week.
Saturday saw temperatures reach the 80s in some areas, but Sunday will drop more than 10 degrees into the 60s and have some patchy fog and cloud cover, bringing a muggy finish to the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
An onshore flow from the northwest may bring a good chance of rainfall Tuesday through Friday, with daytime temperatures in some areas dropping into the 50s by Tuesday.
The Inland Empire, valleys, central Los Angeles and inland Orange County areas will drop into the 60s by mid-week with lows in the 40s.
Mountain communities will see temperatures in the 40s with lows in the teens and a chance of snowfall Tuesday through Saturday.
Coastal areas will be in the 50s and 60s throughout the week with nighttime lows in the 40s.
