Humidity, chance of showers head to Southern California
Southern California could experience scattered rain showers and higher humidity Wednesday as the remnants of a tropical Pacific Ocean storm move across the area, forecasters said.
Curt Kaplan of the National Weather Service in Oxnard said the last legs of the storm — centered about 420 miles off the southern tip of Baja California — would bring a 20% chance of rain to much of the region, along with a stray thunderstorm or two.
The coasts in Orange and Los Angeles counties have the best chance of moisture Wednesday morning.
"We'll get a few sprinkles," he said.
Temperatures will be slightly cooler than Tuesday, Kaplan said.
The San Fernando Valley could expect to see highs in the upper 80s to mid-90s, with 70-degree weather along the coast. The humidity is expected to last through Thursday.
"It'll be muggy," Kaplan said.
