After cool weather ushered in November, Los Angeles will sizzle the next few days.
The weekend will end on a noticeably warmer note across Southern California as high pressure builds across the West.
With an offshore flow firmly in place, cool air from the Pacific will not be able to flow into Southern California and low clouds will fail to develop.
The warming trend will not end with the weekend.
Monday will instead become the warmest of the next several days with temperatures at Downtown Los Angeles approaching the day's long-standing record high of 94 degrees from 1898. A high in the mid-70s in more typical this time of year.
Southern California will continue to sizzle on Tuesday before a change to significantly cooler weather commences on Wednesday. Later in the week, high temperatures will be held to the 60s at Downtown Los Angeles.
