LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California is in for some cooling but not before setting a heat duration record.
The National Weather Service says the 105-degree reading Sunday at the Lancaster airport marked the 22nd day in a row on which the maximum temperature reached or exceeded 100 at the high desert location.
The streak which began on July 29 broke a 21-day record set at the airport in July 2009.
Weather records at the airport in the Antelope Valley date to 1974.
The weather service says low pressure approaching from the northwest will bring a cooling trend to the region this week. Temperatures are expected to fall a few degrees below normal from midweek into the weekend and the marine layer is expected to increase during nights and mornings.
