Showers, cooler temperatures chill Southern California

November 8, 2012 |  5:58 am

Showers and 60-degree temperatures rolled into the Southland on Thursday morning, weather that forecasters expect to last through the end of the week.

The first round of rain should taper off by mid-morning, Dave Bruno, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said, but there will "basically be a chance of rain at any given moment" through Saturday. Forecasters expected less than a quarter-inch in most areas, along with blustery winds.

"It's not going to rain all day," Bruno said. "But we'll be threatened with showers at any time."

Temperatures should stay in the 60-degree range until the weekend, Bruno said. On Thursday, forecasters expected downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach and Woodland Hills to top out at 63 degrees. Burbank was expected to hit 61 degrees.

The cooler weather is a welcome relief for those who complained of the record-setting, mid-90s temperatures the region saw at the beginning of the week.

"It will be much cooler," Bruno said.
