For some Santa Clarita Valley residents, the 80-plus-degree temperatures of the past week are just perfect.

For others, they’ve been cause for marital conflict.

“I turned the air conditioner on yesterday, and my wife made me turn it off,” said Richard Langlie, a Valencia resident who was at Central Park on Thursday watching his 6-year-old grandson play.

Langlie, who said he’s originally from Minnesota, has found the recent weather great for teaching his grandson golf, but lately, it’s been a bit too much, and he’s trying to keep cool.

Saugus resident Cynthia McKibben, also at Central Park Thursday morning enjoying temperatures in the high 70s, said she loves the warm weather.

“It’s nice when you have a 3-year-old and a 4-month-old to get out of the house,” she said.

For fellow Saugus resident Antje Schroeder, at the park with 2-year-old son Jannik. “It’s actually perfect,” she said.

But the perfection — if that’s how you see 80-plus-degree winter temperatures — will wane a bit Friday, as winds kick up and high temperatures sink to the mid-70s on their way to the high 60s on Saturday.

Temperatures will climb back up to the 70s through Monday, the National Weather Service forecast. Lows are expected to remain in the 40s.

Winter weather has set records for high temperatures around Southern California this week, though not in the Santa Clarita Valley, said weather service forecaster Stewart Sto.

Relatively warm weather is expected to continue into next week, with temperatures expected in the mid-70s.
