Heat advisories will stay in effect for Southern California through the weekend as the offshore flow bringing the unseasonable warmth remains in place, forecasters said Friday.

Eight locations around the region had record temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s (31-32 Celsius) on Thursday, the National Weather Service said.

Locally gusty Santa Ana winds could become more widespread Friday night through Saturday.

An end to the warm pattern could occur early next week. Forecasters said a storm system could drop into the region and bring some rain and mountain snow.
