Southern California's Memorial Day weekend should be sunny and a little warmer--just about perfect for picnics, hikes, backyard barbecues, sailing, strolls in the park, beach outings and almost anything else--the National Weather Service said Thursday.
There probably will be some night and morning coastal clouds throughout the weekend, but the high-level storm system that drew a gray layer over the Southland and brought strong winds to the deserts moved east of the Rockies on Thursday.
Higher pressure developing aloft means above-normal daytime temperatures and less extensive coastal low clouds.
The Los Angeles Civic Center should have a high temperature near 84 degrees today. Highs will probably range from 82 to 86 during the weekend.
The Civic Center high on Thursday was 77 after an overnight low of 57. Relative humidity ranged from 39% to 83%.
