Tuesday will bloom from gloom to broil as the warmest temperatures of the week are set to start this afternoon, says the National Weather Service.
Expect a high of about 82 degrees today around the Greater Los Angeles area, a high of 83 degrees on Wednesday, and temperatures staying toasty in the mid- to upper 70s for the rest of the work week.
By the weekend it's back to the future with temperatures returning to the 80s on Saturday and Sunday, with a scene by the sea that's set for slightly cooler coastal air.
