    • October 17, 2023

    Yes, we’re nearing the end of October – but summery weather is still on the horizon.

    In Los Angeles County, temperatures will be well above normal over the next few days, with Thursday likely to be the hottest day of the week, said National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Sirard.

    Temperatures in most coastal areas will remain in the mid-70s, including 78 degrees in Santa Monica on Thursday and Friday. For downtown Los Angeles, expect mostly clear and sunny skies with highs in the 80s and near 90s before the weekend.

    The valleys will see highs in the 90s before Friday, with Woodland Hills in San Fernando Valley nearing the 100s on Thursday, according to Sirard. By Friday, temperatures will drop to the lower 70s near the beaches and low to mid-90s in valley areas, as the weather will continue to cool off quite a bit through the weekend.

    In inland parts of Orange County, and the Inland Empire, temperatures will remain toasty in the middle of the week until Friday, when folks can expect cooler weather through the weekend and early next week, said National Weather Service meteorologist Casey Oswant.

    A heat advisory in Riverside and San Bernardino County will remain in effect from Wednesday morning to Thursday evening, with temperatures anticipated to reach near the 100s, including 97 degrees in Perris and 98 in San Bernardino. By Saturday, mostly sunny skies will be met with highs in the 80s before cooling down into the high 60s and mid-70s come Monday next week.

    Coastal areas in Orange County may see highs in the mid-70s and 80s, such as 83 degrees in Huntington Beach on Thursday, while inland regions will see a spike in temperature in the middle of the week, ranging from high 80s to mid-90s.

    Those planning on enjoying Knott’s Scary Farm’s selection of haunted mazes and spooky scare zones in Buena Park can expect hotter temperatures in the 80s during the day, with cooler weather in the low 60s during the evening.

    By Sunday, fall weather approaches Orange County with overnight patchy fog, partly cloudy skies, and cooler temperatures in the low 70s come Monday and Tuesday next week.
