The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting dangerous heat through the local region, including Santa Monica and the coast.
The combination of strong high pressure and weak onshore flow will continue to produce dangerously hot temperatures across the region through at least the end of the week and possibly into the Labor Day weekend. The warmest temperatures are expected to be across the Antelope Valley, lower mountain elevations, and inland valleys. Overnight lows will also be quite warm with many inland areas not dropping below the mid 70s and some foothill and mountain areas only dropping to the low to mid 80s.
Warming temperatures are expected for coastal areas as well, especially those more than a few miles inland. Due to a stubborn marine layer presence, there will be a sharp temperature gradient from the beaches inland with interior coastal areas of Los Angeles County expected to reach the mid 90s the rest of the week.
Therefore, a heat advisory has been issued beginning Tuesday for the Los Angeles County coast. Elsewhere along the coast, including the beaches of Los Angeles County high temperatures will mostly be in the upper 70s to mid 80s. Overnight lows will generally be in the mid 60s to mid 70s.
