LOS ANGELES — The heat is rising in Southern California and the records are falling.
The National Weather Service says high pressure and offshore flow will push temperatures above normal through Saturday.
High temperatures are expected to peak between 100 and 106 degrees over the interior valleys and deserts, while interior coastal areas range from 85 to 95 degrees. Areas closer to the coast will have highs from the mid-70s to low 90s.
Forecasters expect some heat records Thursday after seeing marks set or tied Wednesday. They included a high of 105 at Paso Robles Airport that equaled the record set on the date in 1967.
Thunderstorms also brought heavy rain to north-central San Bernardino County.
Joshua Tree National Park had flooding Wednesday that left a road near Twentynine Palms strewn with debris.
