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 Orange County 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.
Temperatures are expected to range from 80 to 85 on Friday and 72 to 82 on Saturday, when high pressure that has been hanging over the Western states may begin to weaken slightly.
The high Thursday in Santa Ana was 82 degrees after an overnight low of 62. Relative humidity ranged from 51% to 96%. The high in Newport Beach was 72 after an overnight low of 62.
