Temperatures will drop a few degrees Monday, causing the National Weather Service to remove excessive heat warnings from the San Gabriel and San Fernando valleys. But the warnings remain in effect for the Santa Clarita Valley, L.A. mountains and the Antelope Valley.

“It’s going to be hot, but just not as hot,” said NWS meteorologist Rich Thompson.

Weather specialists say Sunday was likely the peak of the heat wave and record temperatures are not expected in the coming days.
