The threat of brush fires will roll over SoCal into Tuesday as triple digit temperatures  and low humidities are expected.

The elevated fire danger will be joined by brief critical conditions across interior areas, especially in the mountains and Antelope Valley, where 30 to 50 mile per hour gusty onshore winds and relative humidity levels of 12 percent and lower are expected.

The warming trend is expected later in the week. The potential for triple digit heat won’t strike until Wednesday and into Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Glendora will inch close to triple digits starting Wednesday, reaching a peak of 98 degrees by Friday.
