Heat, winds on tap for Southern California this week

It's mid-October, but Southern California is gearing up for another heat wave.

The National Weather Service says temperatures will hit the 90s in inland areas the next few days, with some triple-digital readings possible.

The NWS issued a warning for gusty winds for parts of Orange County, the Inland Empire and San Diego County that when combined with the hot, dry conditions could fuel brush fires.

The winds are supposed to peak Wednesday and Thursday.

The weather should cool down a bit by the end of the week.

Temperatures in coastal cities and the L.A. Basin will be cooler, likely in the 70s and 80s, respectively, for much of the week, according to the NWS.
