Keep enjoying L.A.’s spring-like weather in January -– it’s expected to continue through Sunday.

Temperatures are expected to reach into the 80s along the L.A. coastline through Sunday afternoon before cooling down to the 60s and 70s as the workweek begins, according to the National Weather Service.

Gusty Santa Ana winds from the northeast, which mainly affected the mountains and valleys, had decreased by midafternoon Saturday.

But the low humidity, combined with gusts of up to 50 mph still possible through Saturday evening, continue to pose a danger that wildfires could spread rapidly, according to the weather service.

The agency allowed wind advisories and warnings to expire by midafternoon Saturday.
