Warmer, drier weather ahead for Southern California

November 18, 2012 |  9:31 am

Scattered showers continued to dampen the Southland on Sunday morning, but forecasters said the wet weather should clear by the end of the day, making way for a warmer, drier week ahead.

Areas stretching from Burbank to downtown Los Angeles and Long Beach will see showers and clouds  Sunday morning, with temperatures in the lower- to mid-60s, said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. But the 30% chance of showers was expected to clear up by the afternoon.

Sunday should be the last day of the dreary weather, Sweet said. Temperatures were expected to warm up starting Monday as a high-pressure system built up over Southern California.

"We've basically seen the end of it," Sweet said.

Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday were expected to range in the mid-60s to lower-70s, Sweet said, topping out in the mid-70s by Wednesday.

And for those eyeing Thursday's forecast, there's no need to worry, Sweet said.

"By the time Thursday comes around," he said, "Thanksgiving should be a beautiful day."
