Cool Break for Los Angeles Midweek

After a warm start to the week, a slight temperature dip is in store for the Los Angeles area by Wednesday.

After highs tapped out in the lower 80s on Monday, Tuesday will stay in the upper 70s, likely just falling short of the 80-degree mark. Skies will be mostly sunny after some low morning clouds are burned away by the daylight and a few lingering clouds pass by from time to time.

A change will begin by Wednesday, however, when skies will be mostly overcast. The high temperature for the day will likely not climb out of the upper 60s.

Thursday's temperature will fall even further, struggling to maintain 60 degrees as an afternoon high. Showers will be likely in the afternoon as the sky stays mostly cloudy through the overnight.

By Friday the temperatures will begin to climb again, paving the way for a mostly sunny weekend with highs in the 70s.

Lows during the overnight hours this week will fluctuate with the daytime temperatures, dipping slightly from the mid-50s at the start of the week to the middle 40s on Thursday into Friday.
