After heavy rains and strong thunderstorms lashed the Los Angeles area Saturday, calmer weather will return to the city to kickoff the first week of March.
The last of the rain moved out Sunday afternoon, bringing the return of dry weather to the City. Between Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Downtown Los Angeles received almost more rain than all of 2013.
Heading into the first full week of March, temperatures will begin to rise on Tuesday, reaching into the upper 70s, low 80s by the end of the weekend.
Sunshine will return to Los Angeles on Monday and at least partly sunny skies will last through the week and into next week.
Overnight lows for the week will hover around the mid- to high 50s range.
No more rain is in the forecast for the city for the next two weeks. While the recent rain was helpful for the region's drought conditions, much more rain is needed to break the drought. According to the Drought Monitor, Los Angeles continues to remain classified in an extreme drought.
The chilliest air of the season so far will settle over much of the Northeast Thursday into Friday and will bring frost to a large area.
Tropical moisture from the approaching Odile will deliver another round of heavy rain and flooding downpours to the interior Southwest by the middle of this week.
