California broils to 100 degrees in record heat

LOS ANGELES (AP) A record blast of heat is sending crowds of Californians to the beaches as temperatures hit 100 degrees.

Record heat is forecast statewide again Monday with the National Weather Service posting a heat advisory along the coast from San Francisco Bay south to Big Sur.

Thermometers registered record highs Sunday across Southern California.

The weather service said Santa Ana hit 101 degrees, erasing a record that had stood since 1916. A 94-degree reading in downtown Los Angeles broke a 95-year-old record.

Other records Sunday included 100 in Fullerton; 97 in Long Beach; 96 in San Gabriel, Camarillo and Oxnard, and 95 in Paso Robles.

The heat sent an estimated 250,000 people to Los Angeles County's southern beaches Sunday, and other beaches also had huge crowds.

Valley [Phoenix] set to hit 100 degrees Tuesday

Temperatures in the Valley may spike to the triple digits as a string of 90 plus-degree days replaces last week's cool temperatures.

A strong area of high pressure will bring hot, dry temperatures all week, according to meteorologist Jaret Rogers with the National Weather Service.

Tuesday's high is expected to reach 100 degrees.

Wednesday's high should be around 98 degrees, with Thursday and Friday expected to be in the lower to mid-90s. Temperatures will cool a bit to the upper 80s by the weekend.

Highs forecast for this week are about 15 degrees hotter than normal for this time of year, but 100-degree April days are certainly "not unheard of" in the Valley, Rogers said.

Temperatures in Phoenix didn't reach 100 degrees last year until May 18.
