LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gusty Santa Ana winds and low humidity levels are bringing fire danger to parts of Southern California as unseasonably warm temperatures blanket the region.

The National Weather Service has issued red flag watches and warnings Sunday for mountain and valley areas, where a peak gust of 65 mph was recorded in the Santa Monica Mountains.

The winds are being kicked up by a strengthening high pressure system that could produce record-breaking heat. Temperatures Sunday are in the high 70s and forecasters say 80s are possible Monday and Tuesday.

The weather service said Camarillo, Burbank and Long Beach Airport fell a couple degrees short of record high temperatures for Sunday.
