While escaping the core of the heat, Los Angeles will still turn warmer through Monday.

A high pressure system will build into the area briefly on Monday, bringing highs in the 80s. Monday will have a high close to 85F.

Scorching heat will continue to build across the Southwest through Monday, challenging some records. Areas near the coast will feel an increase in temperature, but it will be moderated by an ocean breeze including Los Angeles.

The expanding heat will increase the risk for heat-related illnesses. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is one of the most important steps in staying safe from the heat.

Those who tend to spend much of their day outside will want to take the necessary steps to cope with the summerlike heat.

The lasting heat is bad news for the ongoing severe drought across the region.
