“Tropical moisture will continue to stream into SoCal,” the National Weather Service said, “bringing continued chances for showers and thunderstorms through the weekend.”

Meteorologists listed the chance of showers Sunday at 20% in most areas of the county.

Highs Sunday will be 72 to 76 along the coast, 75 to 80 in the valleys, 71 to 81 in the mountains and 94 to 99 in the deserts.

A heavy marine later was expected throughout the weekend, continuing into next week.
