According to the National Weather Service, a mini-sizzle is set for the Southland on Friday.

Temperatures will tease the greater Los Angeles area with 80s-style heat for the end of the working week. Pasadena's passionate will may be dripping in degrees near to 90 on Friday, and Woodland Hills, typically the barometer of maximum hotness in the valley, could see 93 degrees.

"People looking to cool off will need to head to the coast," said Stuart Seto, a specialist with the NWS, notes the L.A. Times. Beach temperatures will keep things cool(er) with salty air temps ranging from the mid 60s to the low 70s.

Initially thought to be a 100s kind of weekend, forecasters are now saying the heat is expected to hover in the 70s and 80s but not spike a city-wide fever. On Sunday, however, Southern California could see a little cooling and possible fog that may stick around and bring its friend rain sometime toward the end of next week.
