LOS ANGELES (AP) - A high-pressure ridge is bringing record
temperatures to Southern California and the toasty weather will
continue for at least a few more days.
Highs in the 80s broke or matched records Monday around the region.
National Weather Service forecaster David Sweet says the dry, sunny weather will continue through Wednesday but cooler air may move in from the east on Thursday, dropping the temperature 5 to 10 degrees.
Meanwhile, Central and Southern California coasts are being warned to expect high surf through Tuesday, with swells of 10 to 16 feet in some areas. The surf will subside Wednesday but return with a vengeance through the rest of the week, with possible 20-foot swells on the Central Coast.
