Los Angeles will be having a slight increase in temperature as sunny days remain a constant presence over the next several days.

Temperatures will be slightly higher than normal for this time of year, reaching close to the 90 F mark. The usual high is 84.

Even with the warmer weather, temperatures will not come close to the record high for this week of 109 F, set in 1891.

With plenty of sunshine ahead, skies will have little cloud cover. The sun will remain a strong presence throughout the weekend and into the new week.

Those with activities planned outdoors should take proper precautions and use sunscreen multiple times during the day.

For fans headed to Angels Stadium to watch the Angels' four game home series against the Detroit Tigers, the sunshine and warmer weather will make for ideal baseball conditions.

Meanwhile, the dry sunny skies will not provide any much-needed drought relief for the Los Angeles area. Still in an exceptional drought area, Los Angeles continues to struggle with drought relief efforts as minimal rainfall has occurred. All of California is in some type of drought condition as of July 15. At least 100 percent of the state is in a severe drought situation.
