Woodland Hills tied an existing high-temperature record Monday at 108 degrees.
According to a special weather statement issued by the National Weather Service, strong high pressure over the sourthwestern part of the country combined with a weak onshore flow will continue to push daytime temperatures to above 100 degrees across inland areas this week. The warmest areas, it said, will be western San Fernando Valley along with Santa Clarita Valley and the Antelpope Valley.
Overnight lows will also be higher than normal. Monday night's low is expected to be in the mid to upper 60s in the valleys.
As if predictions for continued temperatures around 100 degrees weren't enough, humidity levels are expected to rise later in the week.
