Despite drizzle, sunny weather expected for Memorial Day weekend
Memorial Day weekend will get off to a cool, gray start in Los Angeles but warmer temperatures and sunshine will return for Sunday and Monday barbecues, forecasters said.
There is a 20% chance of rain this morning and late tonight, thanks to a low-pressure system from the Pacific Northwest that is bringing unseasonably cool weather to the Southland.
"It will move across Southern California late today and tonight and exit by midday" Saturday, said National Weather Service meteorologist David Sweet. Temperatures are forecast to be about 10 degrees below normal at the coast and 20 degrees below average in the Valley. Highs today are expected to be in the upper 60s.
Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy and slighter warmer, with Sunday and Memorial Day mostly sunny with highs in the mid 70s.
