Heat Wave Continues for Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) — Temperatures soared for a third straight day in Southern California, setting records across the region on Monday.

A lingering high-pressure system was to blame for the extreme heat, according to the National Weather Service.

The temperature was expected to reach triple digits in several communities including Burbank and Woodland Hills.

Meanwhile, a bicyclist suffered from heat exhaustion and had to be rescued Monday, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.

The man passed out and broke his arm while riding in a remote area of Irvine, officials said.

Cooler weather was expected to arrive later in the week.
