It’s Going To Rain For The First Time Since May This Weekend

Brace yourselves for some “weather whiplash” this weekend, Angelenos!

Los Angeles hasn’t seen measurable rainfall for 172 days, but that’s all about to change we go through wild fluctuations in weather at the end of this week. The West Coast has been an inferno both literally and figuratively over the past few months with Thursday continuing the hot spell before it rains for the first time this season.

Offshore winds will bring warm and dry conditions to Southern California through Thursday with temperatures expected to be elevated to “brief fire critical weather conditions,” according to the National Weather Service. Most areas in the valley will be in the 90s with high humidity levels and strong Santa Ana winds of 20 to 40 mph. 

On the weekend, however, temperatures will begin to plummet on Friday, with highs in the upper 50s and lows in the upper 40s, causing light precipitation on Saturday and Sunday. The rain is expected to hit harder on Saturday but Sunday it will be a little frostier (relatively speaking). This means showers in the colder mountainous areas (or areas above 4,000 to 5,000 feet) are likely to see some snow, giving L.A. a glimpse of seasonally appropriate weather.  

While we deal with the emotional rollercoaster of the election, we’ll be hit with a meteorological one too—or “weather whiplash” as The National Weather Service is calling it. Drivers should be cautious on the slippery roads and with most activities taking place outdoors, you may want to be prepared to cancel any reservations on outdoor patios.
