LOS ANGELES — Southern California will see just a bit of cooling from its weeklong midwinter heat wave this weekend but forecasters say temperatures will quickly rebound to summerlike levels.
The National Weather Service says an upper-level trough passing to the north will briefly cool the region Saturday, but high pressure building in from the west and a return of offshore flow will send temperatures back up to near record levels by Monday.
The next chance of rain comes later next week when a more significant area of low pressure develops.
Meanwhile, some dense fog developed early Friday on the Central Coast and adjacent coastal waters.
Thursday's set of broken temperature records included 91 degrees at Woodland Hills and 86 degrees at the University of California, Los Angeles.
