Areas across Southern California recorded temperatures in the upper 90s Wednesday as high pressure continued to warm the region.

On Wednesday, it was 96 degrees in Chatsworth, 94 in Pomona and 97 in Fillmore, the Weather Service said. Downtown Los Angeles topped out at 91 degrees.

In Orange County, Santa Ana reached 98 degrees and Lake Forest was 93. In the Inland Empire, Rialto recorded a high of 98 degrees, and Hemet hit 97. 

Temperatures Thursday were expected to remain warm in inland areas, but the coastal areas were expected to cool down as ocean breezes begin to blow, according to the National Weather Service.
