Inland areas of Southern California are in for some broiling temperatures over the next few days, with triple-digit readings possible.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather warning for part of the Inland Empire, urging residents to avoid strenuous activity and to drink plenty of liquids. Temperatures in the area are expected to hit the high 90s, with perhaps some 100-degree readings.

Temperatures in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys are expected to hit the 90s in the next few days, forecasters said.

Officials issued a heat advisory for inland sections of the Central Coast, where temperatures could hit 104 degrees.

Beaches and coastal areas will have much cooler temperatures, with highs in the 60s and 70s and fog giving way to sunny skies in the afternoon, forecasters said.

The high temperatures are expected to cool slightly during the weekend.
