LOS ANGELES (AP) - California's fall heat wave has sent temperatures surging into triple digits again.
Normally moderate downtown Los Angeles reached 107 degrees well before noon on Monday.
Even beach cities are sweltering in temperatures over 100 degrees.
The National Weather Service says Red Flag warnings for fire danger are in effect for the mountains of Los Angeles and Ventura counties and some valley areas.
The dry heat is being produced by high pressure that set in over the weekend.
