Cooler temperatures, cloudy skies and even a misty drizzle greeted Southland residents Wednesday, and more of the same is expected into Thursday, when a low-pressure system moves in and brings a chance of rain into the weekend.

An onshore flow brought cloudy skies into the area overnight, and many morning commuters likely had to click on their windshield wipers on occasion thanks to the moisture in the air.

According to the National Weather Service, the cloudy and drizzly weather will continue throughout the day, and a low-pressure system will move into the area on Thursday afternoon, bringing with it “a chance of showers and thunderstorms into Saturday night, with showers to linger in the mountains on Sunday.”

“The temperatures will remain below normal into early next week, then a warming trend into midweek as a high builds in,” according to the NWS.

High temperatures today are expected to be mostly in the 60s — although a high of 70 is predicted for downtown Los Angeles —  and stay that way into the weekend.

The NWS forecast highs today of 66 at Los Angeles International Airport, 67 in Long Beach, 64 in Laguna Beach, 68 in Irvine, 72 in Pasadena and 70 in Burbank.
