LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern Californians should keep that beach umbrella handy and hold off on buying new snow skis - at least through the end of 2013.

The region saw multiple record, or near-record, high temperatures Friday.

The National Weather Service's Bonnie Bartling says downtown Los Angeles hit 85 degrees at 1:21 p.m., breaking a record set 66 years ago. Long Beach Airport hit 84 degrees, breaking the record of 78 that was recorded in 1972. Burbank tied its record high of 84, set in 1956.

A red-flag warning for high fire danger across much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties is expected to be in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday because of forecasts for northeasterly Santa Ana winds.

A wind advisory is also in effect for Sunday.
