It’s apt to be a cool and cloudy weekend in the Southland, with a chance of drizzles during late nights and early mornings, the forecasters say.
The Los Angeles area might get a little sunshine this afternoon, said meteorologist Dave Beusterien of WeatherData Inc., which provides forecasts for The Times, “but on the whole it will be cloudy most of the time.”
He said there could be a little break in the situation Saturday afternoon, but the thick cloud cover could move in again that night, bringing more drizzles.
It wasn’t particularly warm on Thursday, when the Civic Center recorded a high temperature of 69 degrees after an overnight low of 59. Relative humidity ranged from 84% to 59%.
Civic Center high temperatures should be in the mid-60s to low 70s today, slipping slightly Saturday and Sunday.
Beusterien said the cloudiness is attributable to a weak upper-level storm system that, on Friday, was about 800 miles west of the coast and moving this way.
The National Weather Service said Southern California mountain areas should have highs of 62 to 70 degrees today, dropping on Saturday to the 58-65 range. The high desert today will be 77 to 83, dropping several degrees by Saturday. Low desert highs should remain in the 80s.
The beaches should range from 63 to 70 through the weekend.
