It is cloudy again to start our day, but we can expect a little warm-up as the day goes on.   

Inland cities will see more sun sooner than the last few days thanks to a slowly building ridge of high pressure over the West.  The cooler sea breeze will continue each afternoon and that'll prevent temperatures from getting too hot.

Today's temperatures will be about the same as Tuesday's highs, if not slightly warmer by a 2-4º.  It'll be warmer than average for those cities exposed to the sun from the start of the day.  They'll have more time to heat up, unlike those cities under the marine layer.  

TODAY’S HIGH TEMPERATURES

Coast: Mid to Upper 60s

Basins: Low to Mid 70s

Inland Valleys: Mid 70s to Low 80s

Inland Empire: Low to Mid 80s

Mountains: Low to Mid 70s

High Desert: Low to Mid 90s

Low Desert: Low 100s

WHAT’S AHEAD

The ridge of high pressure continues to build today and that'll create some weak offshore winds that'll help scour out the marine layer earlier again. 

The minor warm up will still keep our temperature below average by 5-8º. 

Come Thursday through the rest of the week, another trough of low pressure takes over and it'll keep the sea breeze going which will cause our temperatures to drop a few degrees again.  Downtown LA's high temperature for the first day of summer on Friday will actually be similar to average highs in March.  

The marine layer will be thick enough that we may even feel some drizzle Friday and Saturday morning.  


In the end, we're estimating the coast and valleys will pick up between .25" to .75" of rain, possibly a little over an inch if some of the heavier rain tomorrow or a thunderstorm actually makes it to the ground.  

The mountains, above 7,000 feet, could pick up 6-12" of snow.

It appears this storm is out of here by Thursday late afternoon-early evening.
