Overcast and cooler right now, but it will be hot again

Temps are supposed to reach 100 again in some parts of Los Angeles today. If these clouds mean the humidity will be higher than yesterday's approximately bone-dry conditions, this afternoon might be more unpleasant than Monday. Closing the books on yesterday, some official temperatures recorded by the National Weather Service:
