Triple-digit temperatures will hit parts of Southern California for the Fourth of July weekend and could combine with rising humidity to create dangerous heat levels, the National Weather Service said Wednesday night.

High pressure will cause temperatures to begin rising on Thursday and Friday with the warm weather extending through the weekend.

Temperatures could hit 105 to 110 degrees in the Antelope Valley and other inland valley areas, according to the Weather Service.

By Sunday, subtropical air could combine with the high temperatures, possibly creating dangerous heat-index levels, the Weather Service said.
