The warm weather bringing temperatures nearly 20 F above average will hold across the Los Angeles area for the first half of the weekend.

Additionally, Santa Ana winds could bring gusts in the 25- to 40-mph range.

Temperatures are set to hover near 85 F into the weekend. While it will stay very warm in the area through the weekend, highs will slowly come back down early in the new week.


According to Meteorologist Ken Clark, daytime highs for the downtown area could hit as high as 20 degrees above their normal average of 68 F for this time of year.

Though not in fire season, Clark said the Santa Ana winds could still have an impact.

"Just because we're not in fire season doesn't mean we can't have one," he said.

Winds will likely not be strong enough to cause widespread delays for air traffic at Los Angeles International Airport, but some travel could be impacted.

By late in the weekend, highs will sink back into the middle 70s and approach near normal on Monday.

"Winds may make for tricky driving for some high-profile vehicles," Clark said.
