High pressure over the Southwest was predicted to bring increasing monsoonal moisture to Southern California this weekend, the National Weather Service said.

Thunderstorms were possible, mainly in the mountains and deserts Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evening, the NWS said. Showers may drift across the coastal and valley areas Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Marine layer clouds may be more limited due to the monsoonal flow and higher sea surface temperatures. This pattern was expected to also favor higher humidity and warmer nights.

Saturday’s highs were expected to be 71 to 76 along the coast, 76 to 81 farther inland, 87 to 92 near the foothills, 88 to 95 in the mountains and 104 to 109 degrees in the deserts.

The best chances for thunderstorms look to be Sunday afternoon, the NWS said.
