Discussion

The combination of an upper level disturbance and some monsoonal moisture will actually bring about an unusual chance for a late night or Friday morning shower or thunderstorm in and around Los Angeles County, and it's possible that some storms that develop contain some heavy rainfall. A low pressure system will then close in on the coast by later in the weekend which will bring about a slight cooling trend to the area along with a renewed onshore marine-layer flow of air. Highs by Monday could very well hold in the mid-to-upper 60’s compared to the near 70 degrees that we’ll experience this afternoon. Looking ahead, there is the chance that some more moisture could head into the southern California region early next week from a tropical system near Baja that could become named Fabio as it turns to the northwest from its current location.
