Why It Was So Muggy And Disgusting Yesterday
Rain in Los Angeles is a rare blessing these days, and a muggy day like yesterday is even more unusual (though we're sure transplants from greener climes felt right at home).
We have a former hurricane to thank for an unusual bout of humid weather yesterday. Tropical Storm Bianca made its way up the Baja California Peninsula bringing moisture and rain to the parched Southwestern US yesterday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
That moisture combined with lingering heat from a record-breaking Monday created the perfect storm, so to speak, for a sticky, disgusting day all the way up to the Central Coast.
Today is supposed to be the last day of wet weather—enjoy it while you can!—but the mountains and desert might continue to see rain and thunderstorms. It should get up to 78 today downtown and 87 in Van Nuys, and it might still feel a little gross from that lingering moisture. But it should cool down a little bit more by Friday.
National Weather Service meteorologist Todd Hall told the Times, "We should see cooler temperatures, but it may be slightly humid because we have this moisture."
