LOS ANGELES (AP) - It’s been another sweltering day in Southern California with record-breaking temperatures and triple-digit temperatures in the valleys and foothills.

The National Weather Service says a high of 95 at Camarillo’s airport on Friday broke a 2009 record for the day of 86.

Oxnard’s 92 topped the 1931 record of 89.

Long Beach airport’s 96 tied records set in 2009, 1995 and 1981.

Newport Beach had 84, two degrees above a 1921 record, and Escondido tied a 1944 record of 102.

Downtown Los Angeles hit 97 - not a record.

The National Weather Service says above-normal temperatures will continue Saturday but things should start cooling down later in the day and the cooling trend will continue into next week.
