Unless there is something crouching beyond the horizon that the National Weather Service hasn't noticed, the Southern California weekend weather will offer little change from the pattern of the last several days, except to cool down a couple of degrees.
High temperatures in the Los Angeles area should remain in the low to mid-80s, the forecasters say, with persistent low clouds continuing along the coast during night and morning hours and spreading into the valleys.
Los Angeles-area high temperatures are expected to range from 80 to 85 today and 72 to 82 on Saturday, when high pressure that has been hanging over the Western states may begin to weaken slightly.
Thursday's Civic Center high was 83 degrees after an overnight low of 62. Relative humidity ranged from 96% to 51%.
As for the recreation areas, there will be light afternoon and evening winds along the Southland coast, with clouds and fog partly clearing in the afternoons. The surf is expected to be two to four feet from Zuma Beach to Del Mar.
