Clear skies, warmer temperatures in store for Southern California

July 19, 2012 |  6:50 am

The remnants of Hurricane Fabio that brought scattered showers and thunder to Southern California have dissipated, forecasters said, making way for clear skies Thursday across the region.

Although an area between Los Angeles and Ventura counties could see a light sprinkle early Thursday morning, meteorologist Andrew Rorke of the National Weather Service said the skies would steadily be "getting sunnier" throughout the day.

Temperatures are also expected to warm up, Rorke said, reaching the 90-degree range in the valleys and the 80s in the inland coastal areas.

They'll continue to rise over the weekend as a high-pressure system moves in, bringing temperatures to the upper 90s in the valleys and topping the 100-degree mark in the desert, Rorke said.
