LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California will continue to broil under a massive heat wave, though forecasters say more record-setting temperatures are unlikely.
The National Weather Service says excessive-heat warnings remain in effect Monday for mountain and desert areas and for the Santa Clarita Valley.
NWS Meteorologist Rich Thompson says the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys will see temperatures well into the 90s and approaching 100.
High-temperature records were shattered across the region over the weekend. The high of 115 at Lancaster's Fox Field on Sunday represented not just a record for a June 30 but an all-time high - surpassing the 114 degrees recorded 53 years ago.
In San Diego County, Campo set a record with a 107-degree mark.
A slight cooling is expected on Wednesday.
