The National Weather Service predicts that "record breaking heat" could reach the Southland Tuesday as breezy conditions and low humidity threaten to cause a heightened chance of forest fires.
"A strong ridge of high pressure combined with locally breezy offshore winds will bring near record high daytime temperatures through Tuesday," the NWS warns.
Monrovia and the rest of the mountainous regions of Los Angeles County are under a red flag warning because of the increased fire danger high temperatures pose, NWS states.
The temperature high in Monrovia is expected to reach 105 degrees Tuesday. The weather will then cool down through the week, settling at 88 degrees Saturday, according to an NWS forecast.
