We may be getting rain and thunderstorms this week, but temperatures will still stay pretty high thanks to plenty of lingering humidity.

Rain is expected to hit Southern California beginning on Wednesday, reports ABC 7. And while the approaching Pacific storm system is expected to cool temperatures slightly, conditions for much of Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire are expected to stay hot and humid. The storm is likely to bring higher humidity levels, which will increase the chances of rain for the area, according to AccuWeather. The rain is expected to begin across the Southland on Wednesday and may stick around until Friday or possibly the weekend.

Temperatures for much of L.A., the Valleys, O.C. and inland areas are expected to hover around the low 90s. Meanwhile, the beach communities are forecasted for much more chill temps in the mid-80s and the mountains will likely have temps in the low-70s with a 20% chance of rain.

Eds. note: An earlier version of this story mistakenly said that the rain in SoCal would begin Sunday, but it should be Wednesday. LAist regrets this error.
