    A record high of 99 was set Monday in Lancaster as October opened with a summer-like blast of heat. Expect another day of hot and dry conditions Tuesday as a red flag warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. for the Santa Clarita Valley, Angeles National Forest and Los Padres National Forest.

    Late Monday, a brush fire burned about 10 acres near Lopez Canyon Road in the Sylmar area.

    Triple-digit readings are likely in areas under a red flag warning. Winds will reach 25 to 30 mph.

    "Temperatures are going to climb around noon," said NBC4 forecaster Elita Loresca. "We're in the 90s today for one more day in downtown Los Angeles, but you can expect those temperatures to be in the 80s tomorrow."
