The weather service also warned that the heat, along with low moisture and gusty winds, would create fire danger for the region through Tuesday.

Those dry gusts were expected to briefly push the fire weather conditions to critical levels during the day today and into the evening. But a cold front is expected to settle back over the region starting Tuesday and Wednesday, with potential rainfall along the Central Coast.
