Friday weather: Another scorcher as excessive heat warning remains

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Scorching-hot temperatures will stick around Friday, but some relief is on the way over the weekend.

An excessive heat warning will remain in effect for much of Southern California likely through the end of the week. Inland desert and valley communities in particular are expected to see triple-digit temperatures lingering all week.

During heat warnings, residents are advised to stay in air-conditioned indoor locations, drink plenty of fluids and check on relatives and neighbors. Children and pets should not be left unattended in vehicles.

On Friday, Los Angeles and Orange counties will see patchy fog and low clouds in the morning before temperatures climb to 85 degrees, staying in the mid-80s through the weekend.

The valleys and Inland Empire will once again see dangerous heat, reaching 97 in many communities and staying in the mid- to upper 90s over the weekend.

Palm Springs could hit 116 degrees on Friday.

Beaches will stay in the mid-70s Friday and the next few days after.

High pressure over the Colorado River is expected to weaken on Sunday, allowing cooler air to flow into the Southland.
