The National Weather Service reminded Southern California residents this weekend that it’s been a long time since the last rain and the region remains in a drought.

The most recent significant rain anywhere in Southern California was a hundredth of an inch in Irvine on June 11. San Diego last saw rain on May 30, and Los Angeles on May 5.

“It’s been awhile, though not at all unusual for this time of the year,” the weather service noted.

The forecast for central Los Angeles on Sunday calls for low clouds and fog in the morning, then sun with highs from the lower to mid 70s at the beaches to the lower 80s inland. Lows Sunday night will be in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

The weather service also reported that ocean temperatures are running above average, between 70 and 74 degrees in most locations, so Sunday will be a great day for swimming.
