After a period of cool weather last week, hotter-than-normal weather has returned to Southern California through Thursday.

Offshore flow and high pressure at the surface and aloft will bring well-above-normal temperatures through Thursday. Normal high temperatures are in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Through Thursday, expect high temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees above normal inland from the coast through the valleys.

Wednesday and Thursday will be the hottest when the offshore flow is strongest. Highs will range from the upper 80s and low 90s along the coastal plain, including downtown, to the high 90s in the valleys.

Some record high temperatures will be challenged Thursday.

It is likely to cool down noticeably Friday and over the weekend.
