Record-breaking heat wave to scorch Southern California

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for Portland this weekend, as temperatures are expected to reach the mid-90s.

The Antelope Valley and other inland valleys are expected to face the worst heat this week, with triple-digit temperatures. The hottest communities in L.A. County Monday will be Woodland Hills and Lancaster, with both expected to touch 109 degrees.

"It will be important to prepare for the heat and have a plan ready in case your (air conditioning) goes out or you don't have any (air conditioning)", the weather service said.

The NWS said it is certain that even coastal areas "will also warm significantly during this heat wave, with highs mostly in the 80s near the beaches and between 90 and 100 across inland portions of the coastal plain, including Downtown Los Angeles".

The National Weather Service warns beachgoers to beware.

The heat wave, which is being caused by a "goliath" high-pressure system moving south from northern Nevada to southern Nevada, already reached San Diego County's deserts on Sunday.

Forecasters said Sunday that a record-breaking heat wave will linger in Southern California until at least Thursday.

Additionally, "the hot and dry conditions combined with very dry fuels" - the vegetation - "will bring an extended period of elevated fire danger to southwest California".
