Drought continues its hold in Southern California, but beneficial rains expected at midweek will stay north of Los Angeles.

Lows during the overnight hours will be in the 50s consistently through the weekend, with increased cloud coverage compared to the afternoon hours. On Sunday the high temperature may peak at the 70-degree mark.

Highs will begin to climb again on Monday when they reach into the 80s with increased sunshine.

Unfortunately, the drizzle that will occur Wednesday morning will not be enough to offset the significantly below-average amount of rainfall the region has seen in recent months. Extreme to exception drought will continue its hold over the area.
