LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California's heading into a bout of hot weather, bringing fire danger and bad air.

The National Weather Service says a high-pressure system will contribute to soaring temperatures through Wednesday.

Downtown Los Angeles could see highs in the 90s, while the San Fernando Valley, Antelope Valley and other areas could reach 108 degrees. The hottest days will be Sunday and Monday.

The weather service says a combination of very high temperatures, low humidity and tinder-dry brush will elevate fire danger in the mountains, foothills and other areas.

Southern California already has dealt with a number of wildfires that have burned homes and killed at least one person.

Hot weather also could increase the levels of ozone pollution. The region is seeing its smoggiest summer since 2009.
