End-of-Summer Heat Expected in Southland Through Wednesday
Summer may be coming to an end, but the Southland is getting a blast of mid-summer-like weather today and tomorrow.
A heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service will be in effect until 8 p.m. Wednesday in the San Fernando Valley, with temperatures of up to 105 degrees expected. Other valley areas will also experience unusually warm weather, with temperatures about 10 degrees above normal, according to the NWS.
“Temperatures will be much warmer today (Tuesday) with highs well into the 90s for the coastal valleys, mountains and deserts,'' forecasters said. “The hottest air will mainly be the western San Fernando Valley in the typical hot spot with highs reaching 100+ degrees.''
Inland areas of Orange County, including Santa Ana, Anaheim, Garden Grove and Fullerton, will be under a heat advisory from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Conditions should change beginning Thursday, with a return of onshore flow and the arrival of a low-pressure system that will likely cool temperatures into Sunday. Forecasters said there could be a slight chance of showers in the region by Friday and Saturday.
As usual, forecasters warned residents to take precautions if they are outside in the heat, such as drinking plenty of liquids, avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun and checking on vulnerable relatives and neighbors.
