LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)  — The temperature in downtown Los Angeles hit a record 92 degrees Sunday, as the Southland sweltered under a red flag fire warning.

Sunday’s high smashed the previous record of 91 degress set in 2008.

Heat records were also broken in Long Beach, Camarillo, Riverside, Anaheim, Idyllwild, LAX, and Santa Ana.

But relief could be on the way: CBS2/KCAL 9 meteorologist Alex Biston is forecasting cooler temperatures early in the week.

In the meantime, a red flag warning for extreme fire danger due to high winds has been issued for the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys through 6 p.m. Sunday.
