High pressure keeping Southland warm

February 20, 2009 |  7:22 am

A  kayaker takes advantage of glassy and warm conditions at Lake Elsinore on Thursday with a clear view of the snow-capped San Bernadino mountains. High pressure remains in control of our Southern California weather through tomorrow.  After a cool and damp early February, Thursday’s 75 degrees in Los Angeles felt like 80.

Expect similar conditions today, if not a little bit warmer.  Early on, light offshore winds will blow through the passes and canyons.  These should diminish by mid-morning.  Satellite imagery is showing some high clouds drifting toward the area from the southwest by a group of spinning lows.  Despite the clouds, ample sunshine and high pressure will allow temperatures to warm into the upper 70s for the warmest valleys.

Saturday should bring partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. Clouds will increase on Oscar Sunday, and there's a slight chance of showers forecast for the evening, but it's not expected to rain on the red carpet.
