Temperatures across Southern California reached the mid-80s Tuesday as warm weather was expected to continue, the National Weather Service said.

High pressure and an offshore wind flow are expected to generate above-normal temperatures through Thursday, according to the Weather Service.

The temperature Tuesday was 86 in Chatsworth, 85 in San Gabriel and 81 at UCLA. In the Inland Empire, Riverside recorded a high of 91 degrees, Temecula topped out at 86 degrees and Chino hit 85 degrees, the Weather Service said.

In San Diego County, Poway reached 83 degrees and El Cajon hit 84 degrees.

Relatively warm weather was also recorded elsewhere in the state, including  Yosemite National Park. Temperatures there hovered in the low 50s Tuesday.

In Southern California, temperatures were expected to drop Friday and Saturday as cooler onshore wind blows across the region.
