The Southland will swelter in above-normal temperatures again today and high surf will pound the Los Angeles County coast, accompanied by strong and dangerous rip currents, forecasters said.

A combination of high pressure and weak offshore flow will keep temperatures mostly in the 90s, with triple-digit temperatures possible in some locations in Los Angeles and Orange counties, the National Weather Service said

“The hot conditions will result in an increased risk of heat-related illnesses, especially for the homeless, the elderly, infants, outdoor workers and those participating in outdoor activities,” the NWS warned in a statement, as it did most of last week. “The extended period of hot and dry conditions will also bring elevated fire danger.”

A heat advisory will be in force in Orange County today — both the coast and inland areas — from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., and a beach hazard statement will be in effect along the Los Angeles County coast through this afternoon, with forecasters saying surf of three to five feet can be expected, along with dangerous rip currents.

“Rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Sneaker waves can suddenly wash beachgoers off of beaches and rock jetties,” an NWS statement said.

The NWS forecast a combination of sunny and partly cloudy skies today and highs of 84 on Mount Wilson; 85 in Avalon; 88 in San Clemente; 89 at LAX; 94 in Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Palmdale and Lancaster; 96 in Long Beach and downtown L.A; 97 in San Gabriel, Burbank and Saugus; 98 in Pasadena; 99 in Fullerton and Anaheim; 100 in Woodland Hills; and 101 in Yorba Linda and Irvine.

Tuesday’s temperature highs are generally expected to be four to eight degrees lower. Downtown L.A should go down to 90 — six degrees below today’s high — and Woodland Hills, from 100 to 94. Yorba Linda and Irvine — forecast to reach 101 today — are expected to be at 94 and 90, respectively, on Tuesday.
