    After a period of cool weather last week, hot weather has returned to Southern California for the next few days.

    Offshore flow and high pressure at the surface and aloft will bring well-above-normal temperatures through Thursday. Normal high temperatures are in the 70s and lower 80s. Today through Thursday, expect high temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees above normal inland from the coast through the valleys.

    The hottest days should be Wednesday and Thursday when the offshore flow is strongest. Highs will from the middle 80s just inland from the beaches to well into the 90s in the hottest valleys. Some record high temperatures will be challenged.

    It is likely to cool down noticeably Friday and over the weekend.
