KTLA weather: The lowdown? A slightly warmer day

June 16, 2009 |  9:01 am


An area of low pressure is situated over Central California, creating instability in the Southland. Expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.  Most of the activity will likely be concentrated over the mountains and the deserts. Daytime temperatures are slowly inching up; in Los Angeles, the mercury should warm to 75 degrees. Some of the valleys could see highs around 80.

The low will move out of the area on Wednesday. This should have a dramatic effect on the weather, allowing temperatures to return to seasonal levels for the first time in about a month. Early morning clouds will give way to partly cloudy conditions. Temperatures will range from the upper 70s downtown to the mid-80s in the valleys.

Thursday is going to be a warm day. Morning clouds and fog are forecast to dissolve earlier. Look for temperatures to reach 90 degrees in the valleys and the low 70s at the beach. Fair skies and mild temperatures will hold through Friday.
