A Southern California heat wave has left the region basking in summer-like heat just days after a storm rolled through that caused deadly mudslides.

The National Weather Service says Saturday temperatures were 10 to 20 degrees above normal in many areas.

Los Angeles International Airport had a high of 86, breaking a 2014 record. The 88 degrees at the Long Beach airport toppled a 2009 record.

A 1983 record fell at Camarillo’s airport, which hit 85.

A high-pressure ridge is driving the heat. Forecasters say temperatures will remain above normal into Monday but there could be showers later in the week.

Southern California has alternated hot and cold all winter. Hot, windy weather drove a gigantic wildfire last month in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Flooding Tuesday in the same area killed at least 19 people.
