Early spring returns as weather heats up
Warm weather is returning to much of Los Angeles, with highs reaching the 70s in inland areas Tuesday and perhaps near 80 on Wednesday.
Beaches will be slightly cooler, staying in the 60s Tuesday and reaching near 70 Wednesday.
But enjoy the warm, sunny weather while it lasts.
By the weekend, maximum temperatures "will drop like a rock with most locations not even getting out of the 60s," the National Weather Service said. Low, cool clouds and fog that hug the coast are expected to return later in the week.
Forecasters issued a wind advisory for Orange County and the Inland Empire for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with gusts of up to 45 mph expected in foothills and below passes and canyons.
