Cooler temperatures — and maybe some showers — headed to SoCal this weekend, bringing a welcome change of pace to some of the more stagnant parts of the city.
The temperatures in downtown Los Angeles could be a touch cooler this weekend, thanks to a cold front passing through Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
For many, though, a warm-up is the order of the day.
A cold front that moved through the area late Wednesday night will bring some breakups in the temperature that’s stuck around 90 degrees.
“In these parts of Los Angeles, it’s been a particularly dry February and you’re trying to get a jump on things. So, it’ll be a nice weekend,” said meteorologist Dan Reed with the Weather Service in Oxnard. “The cold front we’ve had is the one that usually has a chance of pushing up the temperature a bit, so some of this could translate to the weekend.”

Temperatures are typically much cooler on the coast this time of year, and if the sun peeks out, Los Angeles County could see temperatures dip to about 75 degrees on the coast as early as Saturday.

“Friday is usually a little bit cooler than Friday’s in the city. Especially at night. It’s hard to say exactly how it’ll look, but it’ll probably be closer to where we are now,” Reed said. “So, it’s still a good day and that’s probably the best case scenario, but it could also mean that we’re a little cooler than what
