Summer Comes Early For City; Temperatures Expected in Mid-90’s

Parts of the Southland again will bask in summertime temperatures Wednesday with the Santa Clarita Valley expected to hit a high of 95 degrees Fahrenheit, but showers are expected this weekend.

Temperatures will be roughly the same as Wednesday, when a record high for a May 2 was set at Sandberg in the San Gabriel Mountains near the Antelope Valley. The high in Sandberg was 88. National Weather Service forecasters said there could be another record high in Sandberg Wednesday but nowhere else in the Southland.

The NWS forecast sunny skies in L.A. County Wednesday and highs of 73 at LAX; 76 in Long Beach and Avalon; 82 in Downtown L.A.; 86 in San Gabriel and on Mount Wilson; 87 in Burbank; 90 in Pasadena; 92 in Woodland Hills; 93 in Palmdale and Lancaster; and 95 in Saugus.

Sunny skies were also forecast in Orange County, along with highs of 69 in Newport Beach; 70 in San Clemente; 71 in Laguna Beach; 81 in Anaheim and Irvine;  82 in Mission Viejo; 84 in Fullerton; and 86 in Yorba Linda.

Highs in Los Angeles County are forecast to fall into the 70s on Friday in several communities — though not in the valleys — and dip even more on Saturday. Then, amid highs in the 60s and 50s, showers are expected Sunday in both Los Angeles and Orange counties. Showers are also expected Monday, but amid temperatures several degrees higher.

As of Wednesday morning, no showers are expected Tuesday, except in San Clemente.

Forecasters attribute the unseasonable heat to a ridge of high pressure and an offshore flow limiting sea breezes. Downtown L.A. is around 9 degrees above normal, Woodland Hills and Palmdale 14 degrees above normal, and Saugus 17 degrees above normal.
