KTLA weather: Breezy and cool

April 28, 2009 |  8:34 am


Strong onshore breezes continue to keep temperatures on the cool side in Southern California. A trough of low pressure over Northern California is the reason for the cool winds, and this weather system will be with us for another day.

This morning the marine layer is 4,000 feet deep and the clouds are pushing up against the coastal slopes. Some drizzle is falling in the foothills. With the marine layer so deep, we will likely see reverse clearing -- meaning the coastal areas get sunny skies, while the valleys remain partly cloudy. This afternoon cool and breezy conditions are forecast. Winds are going to approach 45 mph in the high desert and the mountains. High temperatures will range from 62 at the beaches to 69 degrees in the Inland Empire.

Wednesday, a weak ridge of high pressure is going to build in behind the exiting trough, bringing mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures, with highs jumping four to eight degrees. Look for this trend to continue Thursday and Friday.
