A red flag warning of extreme fire danger is in effect in Southern California as the region bakes in a major heat wave.

On Sunday, nearly 160 people were treated for heat-related illnesses at the Los Angeles Rams' football game where temperatures hit 90. Fourteen of them were rushed to the hospital.

The National Weather Service said a weak onshore flow pushed temperatures up across the state, hitting the 80s and 90s in many spots, while temperatures in inland areas hit triple digits.

Downtown San Francisco hit 86 degrees - the second warmest day so far this year.
