LA is Like a Heat Wave: Temps Up to High 80s Tomorrow
Whoever said that LA residents don't need seasonal wardrobes was wrong (you know who you are). After weeks of rain and cold temperatures, weather in LA hit a high of 80 degrees today, according to Weather Underground, and could reach up to 87 tomorrow in the city, and over 90 in parts of the Valley. The record temperature in LA for March 31 is 90 degrees in 1966, and in the Valley the record is 84 degrees, reached in 2003.
Don't get too comfy with the warmth, though, and keep your down parkas, scarves and wool gloves on hand, because it will dip back to a near-freezing 57 degrees by Friday night, according to the National Weather Service.
