Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Dressing for SoCal is always a struggle, especially when the weather takes weird turns — like this dense fog that appeared along the coast as of 11 p.m. last night and lasted until late morning Monday.

With the fog clearing out, we're looking at high temperatures for the rest of the day. We recommend you don't skip out on the sunblock and maybe pack some sandals, just in case.

For morning commuters and beachgoers, the dense fog reduced visibility to a quarter of a mile or less in some places. The fog stretched from the Santa Barbara coast to Orange County and you may have noticed it more inland too, like in downtown L.A. and Anaheim.

When you find yourself driving in fog, remember to keep your headlights on, drive slow and give yourself some space.

For the rest of the day, we're looking at low to mid 80-degree weather across the inland areas for today and triple-digit weather for Coachella Valley.
