SAN DIEGO (AP) - California is starting the week with a spring heat spell.

The National Weather Service says temperatures Monday will surpass 100 degrees in some locations from the inland valleys and deserts of Southern California to the inland parts of the San Francisco Bay Area, which are under a heat advisory through evening.

Warming will extend to the coastline in some areas, with highs reaching into the 80s.

On Tuesday, a low-pressure system will pull remnant moisture into Southern California from former Hurricane Blanca, now a tropical storm southwest of Mexico's Baja California peninsula. Forecasters say humidity will increase along with a chance of showers, a slight chance of thunderstorms and heavy localized rainfall.

Thunderstorms are forecast in much of Northern and Central California on Tuesday, creating the potential for wildfires.
