We know your weekend is lit every weekend, but add a hot spell to this one. While this past week may have seen temps dipping into the lower 60s (I thought we were in mid-May!), Saturday and Sunday will see highs breaking 90.

"Saturday and Sunday should be pretty similar, but we should have highs along the coast in the mid-70s; in the basin, it should be in the mid-80s, and for the Valleys (San Fernando, San Gabriel, the Antelope Valley) it'll be in the low to mid-90s," Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told LAist. "Looks like it'll be peaking on Sunday, then will still stay hot on Monday. The Valleys should still be in the 90s. We'll have a drop off of about five degrees on Tuesday, and then another drop of five degrees on Thursday."

Thursday will be the coolest point next week. The coast will return to comfortable temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, while downtown will be in the mid-70s.

"It's the beginning of summer season," Hoxsie continued. "We're shifting to off-shore winds, so we're seeing these high pressure systems starting to assert themselves."

If nothing else, this weekend is a bright and sunny reminder that we really need to work on our tan.
