Slightly cooler weather brings relief, though it'll be hot in some parts of Southern California

The heat wave might have broken, but temperatures in some parts of Southern California will remain toasty for the next few days.

The National Weather Service forecast cooler temperatures near the coast, mostly in the 70s with morning clouds. But the inland and valley areas will experience highs in the 80s and 90s, according to the NWS.

The hot spots will be the Santa Clarita Valley, which could hit the century mark, and the Antelope Valley, where temperatures could get as high at 107 degrees.

The high and dry conditions have firefighters on guard against possible brush fires, several of which broke out last week in the Inland Empire.
