“Typical Southern California weather,” observed the forecaster as he looked over the charts Thursday. “Some night and morning low clouds, a little bit of fog along the coast. . . .”
Meteorologist Dave Beusterien of WeatherData, which provides forecasts to The Times, said inland areas probably will have a little more sun today than they did on Thursday and it should be a few degrees warmer.
But, he said, “there shouldn’t be any drastic changes in the Los Angeles Basin through the weekend.”
He noted that no storm systems or low-pressure areas are really dominating the Southland at the moment.
The National Weather Service predicted Los Angeles high temperature readings in upper 70s today and in the low 80s by Saturday.
Thursday’s Civic Center high was 74 degrees after an overnight low of 64. Relative humidity ranged from 84% to 60%.
Beaches should be 68 to 74 today. Mountain area resorts can look for readings of 74 to 82 today and Saturday.
High deserts are expected to get high temperatures of 92 to 98 both days, while the lower deserts should be a couple of degrees hotter.
As for the surf, it is expected to be 2 to 3 feet today and Saturday from Santa Barbara to San Diego.
