Heat spell to persist through the weekend, with cooling trend expected next week – Orange County Register


A heat spell will persist across Southern California through the weekend, but things will begin to cool down next week thanks to monsoonal moisture that also may bring storms to the valleys and mountains.

Many of the inland communities in Riverside and San Bernardino counties will continue to feel temperatures in the 90s on Saturday but will start to see a slight dip Sunday. That cooling trend will then continue through next week, according to the National Weather Service.

The cooling trend is due to increase monsoonal moisture that will also bring possible showers and lightning.

The possibility of storms, showers and gusty winds likely will only affect the region’s valleys and mountains. But some communities in Riverside County also could be affected, said NWS meteorologist Tyler Salas. The chance of showers likely wouldn’t arrive until Monday.

Coastal areas will see much cooler temperatures, thanks to a marine layer in the morning and evening hours on Saturday and Sunday. The low clouds are expected to burn off by the afternoon, but some beach cities in Los Angeles and Orange counties could see patches of fog stick around throughout the day.

Temperatures in beach cities like Redondo Beach and Torrance will remain in the mid 70s. Further inland towards downtown Los Angeles, highs will stick to the mid 80s.

Meanwhile in Orange County, highs along the coast in Newport Beach and Huntington Beach will be in the low 70s on Saturday, and begin a slow, downward crawl on Sunday that will continue through the week. Further inland, highs in Anaheim and Santa Ana will reach into the low 80s on Saturday, but will also receive some of the cooling coastal marine layer that will help push temperatures down into next week.

The hottest conditions will be felt in the deserts and valleys with weekend highs in the low to mid 100s in the Coachella Valley and San Gorgonio Pass, but will begin to drop down to the mid 90s by Monday.

Maximum temperatures expected Saturday, according to the National Weather Service:

  • Downtown Los Angeles: 84
  • Fullerton: 84
  • Irvine: 81
  • Laguna Niguel: 79
  • Long Beach: 78
  • Moreno Valley: 93
  • Redlands: 96
  • Rialto: 95
  • Van Nuys: 91
  • Whitter: 86
  • Woodland Hills: 95
