More warm weather Monday, chance of rain on weekend

The Los Angeles area will continue to get warmer Monday, with highs in the mid-70s to lower 80s, but the region could see showers as early as Friday, forecasters said.

Gusty winds and very low humidity Monday will increase fire risk throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, the National Weather Service said. Winds are expected to be between 15-25 mph between Malibu and the Hollywood Hills in the morning.

"There's a heightened fire danger, but it's still not enough to expect any big fires," said Curt Kaplan, a meteorologist with the weather service. "We don't have a red-flag warning."

The two counties should also be expecting higher than average surf and a high risk of rip currents, Kaplan said. Some waves could be as high as 8 feet, but that will be rare, he said.

"We're going to get much cooler at the end of the week," Kaplan said. "There's even a chance of showers."

Forecasters said Friday will be partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain, with highs near 70 and lows in the mid-40s to lower 50s. There's a 40% chance of rain Sunday.
