Los Angeles: Plenty of Sunshine for Weekend

The sun will remain a strong presence in Los Angeles to finish out the rest of the week.

Temperatures should remain in the high 70s for the next several days before slightly rising around the weekend.

Overnight lows will consistently hover around the mid-60s. Morning clouds will generally break in the early afternoon to sunny skies.

Fans heading to Dodger Stadium to see the Dodgers series against the St. Louis Cardinals should enjoy nearly perfect baseball weather as no substantial wind is expected over the weekend.

With sunny skies in the afternoon and continuing into the evening, Thursday's 7:10 p.m. start game should see temperatures in the low 70s by gametime with similar weather for Friday's game.

Saturday should be a seasonable day filled with sunshine making great weather for those with outdoor activities planned. However, one should take proper precautions when spending extended amounts of time in the sun and be sure to stay hydrated and use ample amounts of sunscreen.

Sunday could warm up to hit the low 80s with more lasting sunshine.

Temperatures could rise in the beginning of next week as the sunny skies persist.

While the sunshine makes for pleasant summer days, there will be no rain to relieve very dry areas of California that are suffering in drought conditions.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a third of California is in an exceptional drought, the highest level of drought calculated by the federal government. Rain is yet to fall in June, and prospects of any precipitation are very dim for the first month of summer. No rain is in the forecast for Los Angeles until the end of July.
