The shower and thunderstorm threat has all but ended for the San Fernando Valley. We saw some very impressive thunderstorm activity up in the Angeles National Forest, with Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings posted at one point. Some sprinkles fell in NoHo and Studio City, but no measurable rainfall was recorded at Studio City Weather Center.
Thunderstorms are expected to return to the mountains and high deserts Monday afternoon. Not expecting any activity here in the Valley, but the National Weather Service did hedge their bets, mentioning in it's forecast discussion that an outside chance that a stray shower or thunderstorm might find it's way into the valley.
The work week should be pretty low-key. Westerly flow should set up on Tuesday and push all the moisture and related storm activity east, clearing skies. Temperatures should be pretty comfortable for the next few days, with highs in the upper 80s.
The focus of the forecast is now the weekend. High pressure begins to build in on Wednesday, the winds shift offshore, and things really start to heat up. we're looking at 92 on Friday, and a spike to 98 on Saturday. These numbers will continue to be fine-tuned over the next couple days, but one thing is clear: the weekend could be a scorcher!
