Highs in the 80s hit Southern California, will peak Friday

Highs on Wednesday reached the 80s across Southern California, where unseasonably warm weather is expected to continue in inland areas before temperatures begin to cool down Saturday.

Woodland Hills hit 87 degrees, and Pomona and Palmdale each recorded a high of 81 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Downtown Los Angeles reached 80 degrees.

In Orange County, Yorba Linda was 82 degrees and Santa Ana hit 80. In the Inland Empire, Riverside was 86, Lake Elsinore reached 87 and Chino hit 85, the Weather Service said.

The warm weather was caused by high pressure. Temperatures in inland areas are expected to be 10 to 15 degrees above normal before peaking on Friday, the Weather Service said. 

The agency said that cooler weather is expected early next week.
