    Much cooler air will filter in the Los Angeles basin after record temperatures over 100 degrees F baked the area.

    Low clouds on Sunday will break for sunshine later in the day, with highs sinking into the mid-70s.

    “There will be some relief near the coast, but further inland will still remain very dry,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Erik Pindrock said.

    The threat for wildfires fueled by gusty winds, low humidity and heat remains high.

    A slow warming trend will start Wednesday, but temperatures will be nowhere near last week's record-breaking heat.

    Daytime highs will slowly climb through Friday from the low 70s into the upper 70s. Cloudiness will start Wednesday and Thursday but each day will feature plenty of sunshine.
