Record low temperatures tied in Southern California coastal areas

Record low temperatures for the day were tied Monday at coastal locations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, the National Weather Service said.

At the Santa Monica Pier, the temperature bottomed out at 55 degrees, tying the record set in 1949.

The temperature hit a low of 66 in Newport Beach, which tied a record set in 1934. At Oceanside Harbor, the temperature was also 66, tying a record set in 1953, according to the weather service.

The agency issued a hazardous weather outlook Monday as a result of thick fog that reduced visibility to less than a quarter of a mile in coastal areas in Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

Temperatures across the Los Angeles region will continue to remain below normal for much of the week as an onshore flow pushes coastal low clouds and fog inland, the weather service said.
