Another warm day in store for Southern California

Southern California can expect another unusually warm day Wednesday, but a cooling-off period should begin Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

A combination of high pressure over the region and offshore winds has caused warm weather the last few days, with temperatures about 15 to 20 degrees above normal, weather specialist Stuart Seto said.

“That’s why we’ve had very nice weather the past three days and probably again today,” Seto said Wednesday. “Tomorrow, an ocean breeze or sea breeze will start up as that high pressure moves out.”

Temperatures in downtown Los Angeles are expected to reach 91 degrees Wednesday.

A high of 84 is expected Thursday, Seto said.
