Another hot day is expected across southwest California on Saturday, especially in the interior valleys, mountains, and the Antelope Valley.

And desert areas near Los Angeles – including Palm Springs – will fry under another day of temperatures near 113.

But don’t tell any of that to people at local beaches. Heavy fog socked in many coastal areas overnight and Saturday morning, with visibility of less than a hundred yards at times. The fog could burn off later Saturday, but temperatures will reach only the low to mid 70s along the sands.

The National Weather Service office in Oxnard said temperatures will be well into the 90s to about 100 degrees across the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, and 100 to 106 in the Antelope Valley.

It will be cooler at the beaches, with highs from the upper 60s to mid 70s after dense morning fog. Central Los Angeles will see highs from the upper 70s to 80s.

The heat brings elevated fire danger because of drying of vegetation and grasses over the last 4 days.

The weather service advised residents to avoid the heat during the hottest part of the day between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages to stay hydrated throughout the day.
