Despite some recent rounds of rain, Los Angeles remains in the tight grasp of severe drought, with no additional relief in sight in the coming week.

Temperatures are forecast to climb throughout the weekend, reaching within a few degrees of 90 on Sunday.

With limited cloud coverage, the sun's intensity will create higher AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures.

Overnight low temperatures will range from the lower to middle 50s, with a bit more cloud coverage than the daytime hours.

The next chance for measurable rain will likely not be until the end of the month; possibly even longer.

The drought has taken a heavy toll on local farmers and crop growth. After 2013 finished as the driest year on record for the state, it will take significant rain falls to bring the area back to average.
