Currently in Los Angeles — August 3rd, 2022

The weather, currently.

Cloudy in the morning, then some obscured sunshine in the afternoon

Swampy weather continues in Los Angeles, but the humidity should be a bit lower today, so it’s time to end your Florida-in-California vacation and return to reality. We have overcast skies kicking off Wednesday, and some will continue to hang out with us even as the marine layer burns away. The rest of the day will be partly sunny with highs near 83°F, though if you’re on the coast the clouds will be a bit more stubborn and you might get less sunshine. As we get later into the day, temperatures will fall as humidity goes back up, and the clouds will be on deck to give us another marine layer morning. Lows will only sink to about 66°F.
