We were able to see more of the sun Wednesday, but temperatures stayed on the milder side.
Cooler temperatures won't be lasting for long -- a gradual warming trend is expected to start Thursday, with most coastal and valley areas a few degrees above seasonal norms by Saturday.
Weakening onshore gradients should result in less extensive stratus coverage each night, with continued dissipation each afternoon.
In this latest #GOESWest image you can see the marine layer stratus covering the coast and portions of LA County again today, although a little less than yesterday. Pattern begins to change Thurs for warmer and drier weekend. #CAwx #SoCal pic.twitter.com/8QzjjnW3RR— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) April 14, 2021
Strong northerly gradients may crease locally gusty north winds across the Santa Ynez range through Friday night.
Have a great day!
