After a bout of heavy rains and thunderstorms early this month, Los Angeles will see calmer skies and above-average temperatures into next week.

In early March, the city was hit with more than 2 inches of rain.

"That's a pretty big rain event for L.A.," AccuWeather meteorologist Erik Pindrock said. "There was also some localized severe weather events."

As the week comes to a close, drier weather is in store for the city.
