Some heavy downpours are possible, according to the National Weather Service. The chance of storms will be much lower Monday and limited to the mountains and Antelope Valley.

Despite the chance for precipitation, weekend temperatures remain high, lingering in the 70s to mid-80s from the beaches to downtown Los Angeles, exceeding 90 degrees in many valley areas and approaching 100 degrees in the Antelope Valley.
More typical midsummer weather is expected for the balance of the week, with night through morning low clouds in coastal areas, and temperatures within a few degrees of normal, forecasters said.
