The Santa Clarita Valley is expected to dry out and warm up for the rest of the week following two days of relatively high humidity, thunderstorm warnings and — at least on Monday — stinky air.

A southeast monsoonal flow of air created damp conditions Sunday and Monday, resulting in thunderstorms in the Antelope Valley on Sunday and a flash flood warning Monday in Lake Los Angeles and Pearblossom, National Weather Service forecasters say.

Some were blaming the monsoonal air flow for the stench that permeated Southern California Monday from the Inland Empire to Ventura County, wafting odors possibly from a Salton Sea fish die-off — some 100 miles from Los Angeles — into the area, including the Santa Clarita Valley.

Winds were due to shift from the southwest starting this afternoon, with highs reaching near 90 degrees to start the mercury climbing through the week.

By the end of the week, highs could reach 102 degrees during the days with lows in the mid-60s. Southwest winds to 20 mph are forecast in the evenings.
