Currently in Los Angeles — October 17th 2022

The weather, currently.

A cloudy, cool morning and warm afternoon.

After some much needed rain this weekend, Monday will be a reset—ushering in more typical, sunny skies for Los Angeles. You’ll start your morning with clouds and milder temperatures in the 60’s, but when the clouds dissipate in the afternoon, we’ll reach highs around 77°F. It’ll be one of those days you need to dress in layers so you can shed them hourly, but keep them on hand so you can rebuild your textile armor for the brisk night that looms. Once the sun starts setting, temperatures will quickly slide back into the mid-60’s. The evening won’t be as cloudy as it’s been the past few days, so you might be able to see the moon. Lows around 61°F.
