High pressure keeping Southland warm
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.
