KTLA weather: Moderate Santa Anas blowing in

March 27, 2009 |  7:33 am


Moderate Santa Ana winds will develop this morning across Southern California. A high-wind warning is in effect for the Inland Empire until 3 p.m. Local gusts could exceed 60 mph.  A wind advisory is also in effect for the coastal and valley zones of Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties through midafternoon.   Widespread gusts of 30 to 40 mph are expected. 

Temperatures will soar today, especially on the coastal plain. Highs will range from the low 70s at the beaches to near 80 in the valleys. 

Saturday is going to be spectacular weather-wise.  Winds will be mostly light, and temperatures will climb a couple more degrees as high pressure remains over the region.  Lower 80s will be common daytime temps. Sunday's forecast predicts onshore breezes and an early marine layer, giving way to a mostly sunny and breezy afternoon. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than today.
