Forget About June Gloom, Heatwave Continues to Grip Southland
Monday is expected to be the hottest day, with temperatures ranging between 100 and 110 degrees, according to the NWS.

LOS ANGELES, CA - Temperatures hit 110 at Glendale by noon Sunday, as a kettle of high pressure sat clamped above the Southwestern United States and made coastal June gloom a fond memory.
Red Flag Warnings were posted Sunday for the entire county. Fire weather -- hot, dry air, strong winds with low humidity -- was clamped over Southern California by a huge high pressure system over the Four corners region, and would produce dangerously hot conditions Sunday and Monday in all areas across the basin, according to the National Weather Service.
It's so hot, I'm going into the city to swim.
By 2:00 pm, unofficial readings of 112 were observed in the western San Fernando Valley at Winnetka. Other eye-popping readings included 109 near Agoura Hills, 108 in Fullerton, 106 in Irvine, and 96 at the official downtown Los Angeles weather station at USC.
Many beaches were not much cooler: It was 94 at Seal Beach and 88 at Zuma Beach. In places where ocean breezes straggled ashore, it was much cooler: 79 at LAX, and 67 at the Santa Monica Pier. More
