The fire-friendly Red Flag was lifted last night as Southern California expects a small break from the hot temperatures of last week. "Basically what we're expecting early this week is a trough of low pressure to move arcross the West Coast, and as a result what that will do for us is cool our temperatures and an increase in our onshore winds from the sea, bringing the marine layer.. and cooling our temperatures significantly," explained David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

By Thursday and continuing into Friday, Sweet said Santa Ana winds could pick up again, drying us out and warming us up again. However, the heat should not be as intense as last week.

The weekend's forecast appears to, once again, carry a "trough of low pressure," bringing us lower temperatures, said Sweet.
