More high heat and elevated fire danger is in store for much of Southern California, especially interior areas.
The National Weather Service says the scenario is due to an upper-level high-pressure system combined with weakening onshore flow near the surface.
Triple digit heat is expected across the warmest portions of the valleys, foothills and lower mountains through Tuesday.
Forecasters say inland areas of the coastal plain will also be very warm, ranging from 85 to 95 degrees.
The heat, low humidity levels and very dry fuels will combine to raise the danger of wildfires.
