Southern California is gearing up for another heat wave as temperatures are expected to reach the triple digits this week. 

From Tuesday to Friday, temperatures will be well above the seasonal average due to a high-pressure system and some offshore flow, the National Weather Service said. 

The peak of the high temperatures will be on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Beaches can expect temperatures from 78 to 88 degrees F while valleys and inland coastal areas are expected to hit 90 to 100 degrees F. Lower desert communities should prepare for highs in the 110s. 

The coming heat wave has led the Los Angeles Police Department to remind residents that beaches in the area remain closed. With many flocking to Orange County beaches instead, the state mandated a closure of those coastal areas as well.
