Any chance of showers for Southern California have been swept away, which means Los Angeles may not see rain for a while, according to the National Weather Service.

“That system is kind of staying a little bit to our north. So it looks like north of Point Conception that may get some, but the chances for L.A. kind of disappear as the storm moves north of us,” meteorologist Stuart Seto told KPCC.

We can, however, expect winds to hit up to 25 mph.

Next week will bring increased cloud cover, but there's essentially no chance of rain, and that looks like it may hold going toward the end of the month, Seto said.

Although temperatures are cooling down in the downtown and coastal areas, it won’t greatly affect the desert heat, Seto said.

As weekend two of Coachella approaches, people who are attending should still plan accordingly for hot weather, Indio Police Sergeant Daniel Marshall said.

That means using sunscreen and drinking plenty of water.

“The desert sun is a lot more intense than it seems to be, and it can take its toll on you if you’re not prepared. So there’s plenty of opportunities out here to refill your water,” he told KPCC.

Temperatures in the Coachella Valley this weekend are expected to be in the high 80s to low 90s.
