LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California’s summer has been relatively mild so far, with deep intrusion of the marine layer keeping mornings cool.
But forecasters say that will change dramatically.
The National Weather Service says high pressure will build into the region late in the week, bringing dangerous heat and gusty northerly winds in some areas.
Meteorologists say record temperatures are likely Friday and Saturday, along with critical fire weather conditions.
In the same time period, intensifying Hurricane Fabio in the Pacific west of Mexico is expected to send swells that will produce big breakers, rip currents and possible sneaker waves to Southern California beaches.
