After a cold spell last week, warmer weather is expected Sunday. Experts predict temperatures will be around 70 degrees at the beaches and in the mid- to upper-70s inland, with a bit of a breeze.

A high surf and dangerous rip currents are also expected on the coast, and experts advise steering clear of the water's edge.

David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said it’s going to continue to heat up on Monday and Tuesday.
