LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Southern California will continue to be hit with a scorching heat wave Sunday, elevating the danger for brush fires across the region.
Though conditions will be slightly cooler than Saturday, Los Angles and Orange counties will see a high of 87 degrees. The Santa Clarita Valley can expect to see especially dry conditions.
The valleys and Inland Empire will be hit with more dangerous temperatures, as a high of 100 degrees paired with some gusts has the potential to stoke more brush fires. Temperatures will remain in the upper 90s through Tuesday.
Beaches will be more comfortable with a marine layer in the morning and temperatures around 75 degrees.

Dallas : California orders blackouts due to heat wave NBC Dallas (39)
The Independent California System Operator (ISO) declared a Statewide Stage 3 emergency shortly after 6:30 pm due to high electricity use in extreme heat conditions.
According to a statement from the power company PG&E, ISO ordered that the power of between 200,000 and 250,000 customers be turned off at a time in rotating power outages, this is due to the demand for electricity from the extreme heat.
Other power companies in the state have been ordered to take similar action.
Due to the emergency, PG&E will not be able to notify customers in advance of power outages, which could occur anywhere within PG & E’s service area.
The measure comes as temperatures in California exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit and many homes turn their air conditioning on full blast.
As temperatures rise, your chances of suffering from heatstroke increase.
