PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Southern California will enter the New Year with Chamber of Commerce weather as a high-pressure ridge building in through the weekend combines with an offshore flow to bring above-normal afternoon temperatures.
The National Weather Service says Jan. 1 will bring daytime highs in the 70s to around 80 in greater Los Angeles.
In Pasadena, crowds gathered for Monday's 123rd Rose Parade and 98th Rose Bowl football game will see temperatures climb toward the upper 70s. The high will be back up around 80 on Tuesday.
Nighttime lows through the period will be in the 40s and 50s.
The Rose Parade has only rarely been dampened by rainfall.
