Warm temperatures start off the week. An Excessive Heat Warning remains in place for the deserts through 8 p.m. Sunday, where temperatures will peak in the 110-114º range. A Beach Hazards Statement is also in place for coastal areas due to high surf up to 4-6 feet, plus strong rip currents. The Beach Hazards Statement has been extended and now ends Monday evening.

Monsoon activity pushes into the county, bringing storm chances Monday. It favors the mountains and deserts, but could spill into the valley. If there are showers, it will be brief pockets of rain.

The first half of the week stays warm, then temperatures cool a few degrees by the time next weekend rolls around. Conditions dry out by the end of the week as well.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 72-77º
Inland: 83-91º
Mountains: 87-96º
Deserts: 106-111º
