LOS ANGELES (FOX 11 / AP) - Southern California is heating up, just in time for summer.
The National Weather Service says a strong upper-level ridge moving in Wednesday will boost inland temperatures up to 12 degrees above normal.
Forecasters say valley areas around Los Angeles could see triple digits. Downtown LA temperatures will reach into the 80s.
Weather service meteorologist Dave Bruno tells City News Service that temperatures along the coast will be much more bearable thanks to onshore flow.
The warm spell is expected to continue Thursday, the first day of summer, and into the weekend.
