After a week of mindboggling, eyerolling, brainmelting, uncomfortable-moisture-inducing heat, temperatures will return to sanity in the coming week.

Near Mount Washington, the highest your thermometer will peak is around 80 on Friday, the National Weather Service predicts. If you're out in Santa Monica, temps will top out around 75 this week, with most days in the 60s. In the San Fernando Valley and the SGV, the highs will climb up to 82 on Saturday, with most days in the 70s.

Air quality could be a bit better, with the South Coast Air Quality Management District warning that smog will be "moderate to unhealthful" today and tomorrow for people who are sensitive to dirty air.

The L.A. area has a chance of drizzle Tuesday morning before 11 a.m., which is weird, but May showers bring June gloom, right?
