It Will Kinda Feel Like Fall For Like, Two Days

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It has been hot—too hot. Also, dry—too dry. And while it's old hat to comment on/bemoan L.A.'s lack of seasons, it's still around this time every year that the heat starts to feel a little...tired. Whatever the opposite of festive is, that is what's been going on here. All we want is to be able to wear a sweater for once. Is that so much to ask?

Well the weather gods might have answered your prayers if you've been longing for cooler temperatures. reports that we'll be getting some relief, and we'll be enjoying some weather that *actually* feels somewhat autumnal. Temperatures will be plummeting down to the 60s, with highs only reaching a numbingly cold 70 degrees, so get out your wool-sweaters. And rain, yes—"hello rain my old friend," as the song goes. Light showers have been forecasted for Sunday morning, and the cool-ish weather will stay through Monday.

So, go ahead. As the rain lightly showers against your window, Google "cozy, warming fall soup recipes" to your hearts content. Snuggle up under a wool blanket until you get too sweaty. This won't last, so indulge in #fall while you can, but just avoid driving if you can, please.
