Santa Ana winds will develop late Sunday and bring with them another winter heat wave to the Southland.
The National Weather Service office in Oxnard forecasts another period of unseasonably hot and dry weather for Southwest California between Sunday and Tuesday.
High temperatures in this period will likely range from the mid to upper 80s and low 90s for many coastal and valley areas. Many record highs will be threatened once again, and there will be increased risk of fire.
“The hot weather will bring an increased risk of heat-related illnesses, especially for the elderly, those participating in the LA Marathon, and anyone performing strenuous outdoor activities,” the weather service said.
The forecast for central Los Angeles from Malibu to Long Beach calls for morning fog followed by sunny conditions with highs from the 70s at the beaches to the mid 80s inland. Lows overnight will be in the mid 50s to mid 60s.
