    Southern California is experiencing record heat for the month of January.

    The National Weather Service said Sunday was the eighth straight day that temperatures reached 80 degrees or more in downtown Los Angeles.

    That broke the record of seven days this time of year back in 1983.

    The forecast calls for clear, cool conditions on Monday night, with a mild Santa Ana condition again in the Hollywood Hills, Malibu, Porter Ranch and other wind-prone areas.  The expected low is about 48 degrees, warmer in the windy areas. Tuesday will be sunny and hot again, with a high of around 78 degrees.

    We could see rain later in the week.
