Monday Brings With it a Small Chance of Showers

A small chance of showers and thunderstorms will hover over the Southland Monday, the National Weather Service said.

NWS forecasters set the chance of showers and thunderstorms in Los Angeles County at 20 percent Monday afternoon and again Monday evening, although the chance may rise to 25-30 percent in the San Gabriel Mountains and the Antelope Valley, said NWS meteorologist Kathy Hoxsie, adding that precipitation this morning as well is not totally outside the realm of possibility.

The expected precipitation will be the product of monsoonal moisture out of Arizona and Baja California combined with a ridge of high pressure over the Four Corners region of the Western United States and instability in the atmosphere, she said. If any rain materializes, there likely won’t be much of it, said Hoxsie, adding that “we could get less than a 10th of an inch.”

The biggest concern arising from the forecast is the possibility of dry lightning, which can spark wildfires, Hoxsie said. But no fire-related warning had been issued by the NWS as of early Monday morning.

The NWS forecast mostly cloudy skies in L.A. County Monday and highs of 73 degrees in Avalon; 74 at LAX; 78 in Long Beach; 81 in Downtown L.A.; 83 in Burbank; 84 in San Gabriel and on Mount Wilson; 85 in Pasadena; 86 in Saugus; 89 in Woodland Hills; 95 in Palmdale; and 96 in Lancaster. Temperatures will steadily climb by small increments over the coming days. By Sunday, highs should be at 86 in downtown L.A., 91 in Burbank; and 100 in Woodland Hills, Palmdale and Lancaster.

Partly cloudy skies were forecast in Orange County Monday, along with highs of 69 in Laguna Beach; 72 in San Clemente; 75 in Newport Beach; 81 in Mission Viejo; 83 in Irvine, Anaheim and Fullerton; and 84 in Yorba Linda. Some Orange County communities will experience small temperature increases this week. Sunday’s highs will be 72 in Laguna Beach, 88 in Anaheim, 90 in Fullerton, and 91 in Yorba Linda.
