We should move everything outside because it’s a beautiful day with sunny skies. However, there will be some high clouds moving in this afternoon. Enjoy the sunshine today because significant changes are coming starting tomorrow.
Yesterday, downtown reached a high of 81°F, which was above average. We will experience above-average temperatures again today before cooler weather arrives.
It is currently 47°F in Riverside, 57°F downtown, 60°F in Oxnard, and 29°F in Lancaster. In general, it is warmer than this time yesterday, and daytime highs this afternoon will also be warmer.
Gusty winds can still be felt in typical spots like the Santa Clarita Valley, Malibu, and Ventura County. The winds will die down later this afternoon as the wind direction changes, leaving it breezy for the rest of the evening. These numbers are already dropping, resulting in low humidity percentages today, which briefly elevates the fire danger level. However, due to a giant trough in the Pacific, we will see an increase in humidity starting tomorrow.
This significant change will occur as the trough moves off the coast of San Francisco. Consequently, the wind direction will shift to a southwesterly flow..
