More warm weather coming to Southern California
Temperatures will be slightly cooler Thursday but inland areas of Southern California could still experience record highs, the National Weather Service said.
Woodland Hills, which hit a record high of 94 on Wednesday, is expected to cool to 91 Thursday. But that could best the record of 89 set on the same date in 1994.
Burbank could also set a record Thursday with an expected high of 88. Wednesday in Burbank, it was 93, breaking the old record of 85 set in 1951.
Dense fog in coastal regions and the San Gabriel Valley, which slowed down commutes Thursday morning, may return again Friday, said Scott Sukup, a NWS meteorologist.
By Friday, inland areas should cool further to the upper 70s and 80s, with temperatures still above normal for the weekend, Sukup said.
In downtown Los Angeles, where it was 85 Wednesday, the high Thursday is expected to be 79, with weekend highs in the mid to upper 70s.
