Warm, humid weather to last at least through Friday, weather service says

Thunderstorms, lightning and rainbows were reported Wednesday evening across the Los Angeles area as subtropical air pushed into the region.

The National Weather Service said the warm and humid conditions would last through at least Friday as a low-pressure system continues to push moist air flows that could trigger continued thunder showers and lightning and increase the threat of brush fires.

The chance of thunder showers was highest in the mountains and Antelope Valley, the weather service said.

The high temperatures Wednesday ranged from 92 in downtown Los Angeles to 72 at the Santa Monica Pier and 97 in Palmdale, the weather service said.

a double rainbow, if you randomly had the fortune to see it :)

What is the difference between tropical air and subtropical air. I think they are the same and it should be called tropical. Where are the subtropics? I do think there is such a place.
