Southern California will see hot conditions over the weekend, with temperatures surpassing 100 degrees in some inland valley areas. Temperatures will rise into the 80s in the Los Angeles Basin and the 90s in the San Fernando Valley. The National Weather Service said the Santa Clarita and San Gabriel valleys could top 100 degrees on Saturday. The hot conditions add to the challenges of firefighters battling the Powerhouse fire in the Angeles National Forest. Stronger winds are also expected in the fire zone.

Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey were advising Southern California residents Monday evening about a hoax letter that is warning of an "impending large quake. " The letter with the agency's logo was apparently being sent to residents in Orange County, urging them to be prepared for a large quake. "California is issuing a statewide warning," the letter states. The agency advises residents to check the USGS website for the latest earthquake information. The letter comes in the wake of Friday's 5.1 magnitude temblor centered in La Habra.

Imitation may be flattering, but not to Clay Harding, owner of a popular craft beer bar and restaurant in Alhambra called 38 Degrees Ale House & Grill. Harding recently learned that a new pub had opened in Carlsbad with the 38 Degrees name -- and he's not happy about it, reports the blog thefullpint.com . "I will be making some phone calls, and seeing what I can do to protect my property," Harding told the blog. "I have and will always support those who spread the word, educate, brew and sell real, live craft beers," Harding said.

Two tiny crustaceans whose burrows in the sand were once familiar sights to beachgoers are on their way to being extirpated from Southern California, according to a new study. Scientists at UC Santa Barbara found that two species closely related to the roly poly have vanished from more than 60% of beaches from Point Conception to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they were recorded a century ago. “We were really surprised at how strong the pattern of loss is,” said Jenny Dugan, a biologist at the university's Marine Science Institute.
