After weeks of intense heat, we're finally getting a break. After sunset, you might even get to wear that scarf you've long forsaken. Today, it's a high of 67 at LAX today, 69 in downtown Los Angeles, and 70 up in Burbank. Expect slighter warmer temperatures on Thursday and Friday, before cooling back down this weekend, City News Service reports.A wind advisory is in effect until 9 p.m. today in the Antelope Valley, and from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the San Gabriel Mountains in L.A. and Ventura counties. The National Weather Service warns that winds will blow between 20 to 35 mph, gusting at 55 mph. A wind advisory will begin at 5 p.m. today and carry on until 2 p.m. Thursday in the Santa Monica Mountains Recreational Area and the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, where winds will blow between 15 an 30 mph, gusting at 45 mph. Residents are warned that these high winds could make driving difficult, and to watch out for downed trees or power lines, and to be prepared for power outages.

Antelope Valley and San Luis Obispo County are also due of the first frost of the year. There is a frost advisory in Antelope Valley from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Thursday morning, and a hard freeze watch from Thursday night through Friday morning. Temperatures may get quite low, dropping into the 20s. Residents are advised to care for plants, pets and livestock accordingly. In the event of a hard freeze, which means temperatures remain at 28 degrees or less for two or more hours, the NWS warns that some outdoor plants may require protective measures.
