Record heat -- and record cold -- in Southern California

May 2, 2011 |  7:15 am

It's been pretty hot outside. And it's been pretty cold.

On Sunday, two California spots posted record low temperatures for the day: Lancaster (32) and Paso Robles (34). But Camarillo posted a record high of 83, topping the old record of 80 set in 1960.

The National Weather Service said that the warm conditions that began over the weekend will continue through Thursday. Temperatures will range from the 70s at the beach to the 90s inland. Wind gusts of 20-30 mph are likely in local hills, mountains and canyons. Wind advisories have been issued for parts of the Inland Empire.

Over the weekend, the combination of heat and winds caused several small brush fires.
