Temperatures hit the 80s across Southern California on Wednesday as the region basked in summer-like weather.

By Wednesday afternoon, it was 88 degrees in Chatsworth, 86 in Saugus and 80 at Long Beach Airport, the National Weather Service said.

In Orange County, Santa Ana topped out at 83 degrees and Yorba Linda reached 82 degrees. In the Inland Empire, Chino was 82 degrees and Lake Elsinore reached 84.

Farther north, Pismo Beach in San Luis Obispo County reported a high of 80 degrees, and Fillmore in Ventura County hit 85 degrees, according to the weather service.

The warm weather was the result of high pressure that is expected to linger into Friday. Cooler ocean breezes will blow across the region on Saturday and cause temperatures to drop, according to the weather service.
