Cooler temperatures — and maybe some showers — headed to SoCal this weekend
An early-morning fog has lifted from the hills of Southern California, giving the rest of the state a rare treat.
SoCal could be a lot wetter this weekend, as forecasters warn that rain is likely in the Los Angeles area, along with isolated showers in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Much of central and southern California could see more of the same.
Temperatures in San Diego and Los Angeles will start out the weekend between 90 to 95 degrees. The mercury could reach as high as 100 degrees there by midday, by which point it should be safe to bundle up again.
But temperatures should be cooler farther south, where highs could reach the low 70s.
In Orange County, temperatures will warm into the upper 70s at noon Sunday.

The lower San Gabriel valleys will go into the high-50s or low-60s, with some spots in the upper 60s. The rest of the Greater Los Angeles area should cool off considerably. In Riverside County, the high drops into the 50s, but will feel much like the 60s in parts of San Bernardino County and Orange County. Temperatures in Anaheim will dip into the 50s. In the Inland Empire, the high falls into the 30s.
A few spots near the beaches — including Manhattan Beach — will reach the upper 40s or lower 50s.
Temperatures will drop to the upper 30s in Santa Barbara County and the San Jacinto Mountains; the low for Saturday night will be in the low 20s.
And in San Diego, the low will stay in the upper 20s, and only drop to the low-30s on Sunday in parts of the north San Diego hills.
Friday, July 10: Temperatures in most parts of Los Angeles could reach the mid-60s through the middle of the day, with the mercury at least 50 degrees. In some spots, the high could reach the upper 80s; the low may
