A gust of wind. A dog barks. Cue the truck. An "offshore breeze" will be accompanying a warm weekend of clear skies and 70s highs by the beaches with temps up to the 90s expected for inland and valley areas, notes CBS Local. Sunrise Saturday saw heavy wind and coolness in the mountains with 56 mph gusts reported in Malibu (64 mph near Mount Wilson).

According to the National Weather Service, winds will continue in areas across the region into Sunday while the hotness is expected to stick around until Thursday night when the "patchy fog" shows up to ruin the party.

Despite the warmer air, ocean temperatures today should stay "relatively cool around 60 degrees with breakers rolling in at 3-5 feet," notes CBS Local.
