Humidity, chance of showers head to Southern California

Southern California could experience scattered rain showers and higher humidity Wednesday as the remnants of a tropical Pacific Ocean storm move across the area, forecasters said.

Curt Kaplan of the National Weather Service in Oxnard said the last legs of the storm — centered about 420 miles off the southern tip of Baja California — would bring a 20% chance of rain to much of the region, along with a stray thunderstorm or two.

The coasts in Orange and Los Angeles counties have the best chance of moisture Wednesday morning.

"We'll get a few sprinkles," he said.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler than Tuesday, Kaplan said.

The San Fernando Valley could expect to see highs in the upper 80s to mid-90s, with 70-degree weather along the coast. The humidity is expected to last through Thursday.

"It'll be muggy," Kaplan said.
