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.

The announcement for various wine events and tastings usually comes in so early, I'll stash the release away, planning to write about the event a couple of weeks before it takes place. Now I'm finding out that's all wrong, because tickets sell out fast, especially to the events that don't require mega-bucks to attend. So here it is: Tickets went on sale a couple of days ago for Family Winemakers of California 's annual Southern California tasting. This year -- the fifth -- it takes place Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, and shines the light on 175 producers from small, family-owned wineries.

Southern California will finally get a respite from the searing summer heat over the next few days, but it will be short-lived, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures are expected to be normal to slightly below normal in coastal areas and in the valleys through Wednesday, said Andrew Rorke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard . A marine layer returned Sunday and is expected to push temperatures down, Rorke said. During a heat wave, interior coastal air pushes the cooler air farther onto the water and keeps it from reaching land.
