Record high temperatures were reached across Southern California on Monday as the region baked in summer-like weather.
Bob Hope Airport in Burbank topped out at 103 degrees, breaking a 100-degree record for the day that had stood since 1976, the National Weather Service said. Lancaster recorded 98, topping by one degree the record set in 1996.
In Ventura County, Camarillo recorded a high of 86. That broke an 83-degree record set in 1996, according to the Weather Service.
In the Inland Empire, Lake Elsinore hit 105, breaking a record of 104 that had stood since 1927, the Weather Service said.
Near the border with Mexico in eastern San Diego County, the high at Campo was 100. The previous record was 95, set in 1984. Along the coast, temperatures were in the mid-70s.
The warm weather was a result of high pressure over the region, the Weather Service said. Temperatures were expected to be about 10 degrees cooler across the area Tuesday as onshore winds from the coast blow across the region.
