Warmer temperatures are headed for Southern California this weekend, especially in the valleys, with some areas expected to top 100 degrees, the National Weather Service said. Highs in inland valleys will range from about 92 to 103 degrees Friday and Saturday as a high-pressure system from Arizona expands westward into California, said David Sweet, a weather service meteorologist. Some valley areas, such as in Burbank, could experience temperatures about 10 degrees above normal, Sweet said, before cooling begins Sunday.

Catcher Jeremy Martinez of Santa Ana Mater Dei will hit three home runs in a game. Sarah Baxter of Simi Valley will receive a phone call from President Obama after setting another cross-country record and going four years without losing a high school race.

The chips are falling into place for Homeboy Industries. The hottest-selling snack item at 256 Ralphs deli sections across Southern California in the first weeks of February wasn't pretzels, or cheese puffs, or pita or bagel crisps. According to the Compton-based supermarket chain, the No. 1 seller was Homeboy Industries' tortilla chips and salsa. Homeboy Industries, the Los Angeles nonprofit founded by Father Gregory Boyle to help former gang members and convicts turn their lives around, launched its line of chips and salsa at Ralphs last month as part of an effort to revive its hard-hit finances.

Starbucks customers are about to get a different kind of buzz. Already a go-to for morning commuters and afternoon pick-me-ups, the coffee giant is aiming to expand the happy hour crowd by offering wine and beer at select Southern California locations. Starbucks said it would bring booze to four to six new or remodeled stores in the region by the end of this year and planned to do the same to a small group of locations in Atlanta and Chicago. In addition, patrons could order "premium food" such as savory snacks, small plates and hot flatbreads.
