Forecaster Say Weather Will Stay the Same

Times Staff Writer

The weather pattern that began over the Memorial Day weekend--late-night and early-morning low clouds clearing to mostly sunny afternoons--will continue through this weekend, the National Weather Service said Thursday.

A low-pressure system resting over the desert is pulling the marine layer inland, resulting in cloud coverage through the mid-morning hours for the inland areas and mostly overcast days along the coast.

High temperatures at the beaches are expected to reach 69 degrees today, with little change forecast for the weekend. Ocean temperatures will be about 68.

Inland high temperatures are expected to be in the 74- to 84-degree range this weekend, with overnight lows dipping down to the upper 50s.

The high temperature Thursday at Lindbergh Field was 70.

“May and June are traditionally the cloudiest months of the year here, and this year is no exception,” forecaster Wilbur Shigehera said. “In fact, I would be surprised if we saw any decrease in the late-night and early-morning clouds.”


A thermal low-pressure system hanging over the desert area will result in weekend temperatures as high as 105 Desert lows will range from 58 and 68.

Mountain areas will be sunny and clear, with highs reaching 82 and overnight lows in the 48- to 55-degree range.

“All in all, we’re looking at a weekend which will be nice for outdoor activities,” Shigehera said. “This is very typical May weather, and little change is expected.”
