People are seen at the beach during a heat wave, Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020, in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Scorching temperatures continued to bake Southern California on Sunday, with a record of 121 degrees set in Los Angeles County and at least one death, a 41-year-old hiker, suspected to be related to the heat.

The record 121-degree reading, in Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley, northwest of downtown Los Angeles, eclipsed a record of 119, set in July 2006, according to Dave Bruno, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Los Angeles/Oxnard forecasting office.

"When all is said and done, there will probably be a dozen official records today, at least daily records, and several monthly or all-time records today," Bruno said.
