After a few days of unseasonably hot conditions in Southern California, relief from the heat is on the way Monday.

ABC7 weathercaster Danny Romero says the strong ridge of high pressure that has dominated our weather will be pushed down by a trough starting Monday and continuing into midweek.

By Wednesday, we can expect cooler temperatures and the possibility for some marine layer. Temps could even drop down to below normal before the weekend.

Temps Monday will be mostly in the upper 70s in the Inland Empire, Los Angeles and Orange counties, with beach fog at the shores. Mountains will see upper 50s with wind gusts up to 43 mph. The high desert can expect low 80s.

The first day of spring arrives Thursday.
