Southern California residents are in for another wave of summer temperatures this week.

Temperatures are expected to get up to the high 70s and mid 80s throughout Los Angeles Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys could top out in the low 90s.

"This time of year, especially with the El Niño conditions in effect, we always say there's a pretty good chance of some rain. So I don't think the rainy season's over yet, but... we're certainly getting some weather that we didn't expect right now," David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told KPCC.

Sweet said the weather should cool off by the end of the week, but still expect it to be in the 70s — with no chance of rain.

In addition to the heat, a wind advisory has been issued for some valley and mountain areas, according to the Associated Press. The weather service is advising motorists that gusts hitting 50 mph could make driving difficult on mountain roads.
