Warm weather to linger; slight chance of mountain showers

The warmest days of the week in Southern California should be Wednesday and Thursday, with a slight chance of rain in the mountains and deserts, according to National Weather Service forecasts.

Temperatures will range from the low 70s at the beaches to the high 80s inland, weather service officials says.

”The high pressures is what's bringing in a lot of this heat. That's very strong,” said Stuart Seto, a spokesman for the weather agency. “It starts moving eastward on Friday, so the temperatures start cooling down into early next week.”

The Los Angeles County coastal areas are expected to have morning clouds and fog with the rest of the region remaining partly cloudy for the day. Areas east of the mountains have a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoons. Highs are expected to be 101 to 110 degrees.

Excessive heat warnings have been issued starting at 11 a.m. Wednesday to 7 p.m. Thursday in the Los Angeles County mountains and Santa Clarita Valley.
