National Weather Service forecasters extended a red flag warning through Wednesday in the Santa Clarita Valley and other mountain and valley areas of Southern California, warning of high fire danger and continued high winds and high temperatures.

Winds blew over some temporary fencing erected in Central Park early Monday, but otherwise no major wind damage was reported around the SCV on Monday.

Temperatures were forecast to skyrocket this week, hitting 99 degrees Wednesday and topping out at 101 degrees on Thursday before a very gradual cooling trend moves in.

Forecasters say new high-temperatures records could be set this week throughout Southern California. The red flag warning could be extended further into the week.

Forecasters warned residents to take hot-weather precautions, drinking plenty of non-alcoholic fluids, checking on elderly residents and ensuring no one is left inside closed cars, even for a little while.
