This is one of those hot, sunny Southern California Halloween days that makes the rest of the nation jealous — we’ll have clear skies and temperatures nearing 90.
Trick-or-treaters may be miserable in rainy Houston, Chicago or Seattle Saturday night, but going door-to-door with cute costumed threats in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas should be a delight with mild, cloud-free, almost-hot weather.
Temperatures will be a bit cooler Sunday, and then watch out: A cold front is headed our way, bringing much cooler, cloudy weather to Southern California Monday and for much of the rest of the week. There could even be a slight chance of rain.
But for now the National Weather Service forecast for Saturday for the central Los Angeles area, from Malibu to Long Beach, calls for sun with highs in the lower 80s to lower 90s and 15 mph winds. Halloween night will be clear with lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s.
Coastal Orange County will be a littler cooler, with highs 82 to 87 and light winds during the day, and lows 47 to 62 at night.
For Saturday, the air will also be clear, with the South Coast Air Quality Management District predicting a good to moderate range in the South Coast Air Basin.
A cooling trend will begin on Sunday as a cold low-pressure system moves into Southern California.
