It is Valentine's Day weekend, so things might get a little hot in some parts of the city. Ahem...

But wait, it's actually going to be hot everywhere in Southern California, whether you have a date, or not. Temperatures will hit the upper 80s, even the low 90s around the Southland. That's unseasonably warm for February.

And warm weather means lots of folks in SoCal will be hitting the beach over the next few days.

AJ Lester is an ocean lifeguard specialist for Los Angeles County. He spoke to Take Two from the pier at Hermosa Beach about the conditions on the beach and what lifeguards expect to see over the weekend.
