Temperatures To Warm Up By Wednesday

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Heavy cloud cover and dense fog could bring morning drizzle to coastal Southern California through Monday, but a warm work week is forecast.

The "May gray" may squeeze out enough moisture to wet streets, but it is unlikely to add much to Los Angeles' seasonal rainfall total -- now at about 20 inches.

The National Weather Service reports that highs Sunday will range from the 60s along the coast to the lower 70s in the valleys and inland areas.

More drizzle is forecast Monday with the jet stream expected to dip farther south, increasing the onshore breeze and stacking up marine moisture across the Los Angeles Basin.

Morning fog and low clouds followed by sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 60s and 70s are forecast for Tuesday.

By Wednesday, the valleys should see temperatures in the 80s, continuing through Friday with overnight lows in the 50s. Beach highs Wednesday through Friday should be in the 70s.
