South­land heats up into triple dig­its

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - News -

LOS AN­GE­LES ( CNS) — Tem­per­a­tures are heat­ing up in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, with triple-digit highs ex­pected through early next week in some ar­eas.

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice is­sued a heat ad­vi­sory through 8 p.m. to­day for the San Fer­nando, San Gabriel and Santa Clarita val­leys, and Los An­ge­les County moun­tains.

“The ex­tended pe­riod of hot tem­per­a­tures cre­ates a dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion in which heat ill­nesses are pos­si­ble, es­pe­cially for the el­derly and peo­ple out­doors that do not re­main hy­drated,” warned the NWS state­ment. “Tem­per­a­tures in­side ve­hi­cles, even if the win­dows are par­tially open, can quickly rise to life-threat­en­ing lev­els.”

The weather ser­vice ad­vised area res­i­dents to “Drink plenty of flu­ids, stay in an air-con­di­tioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on rel­a­tives and neigh­bors.”

Satur­day’s highs reached 104 de­grees in Palm­dale, Lan­caster and Santa Clarita; 105 at Ed­wards Air Force Base; 102 in Ac­ton; 88 de­grees in down­town Los An­ge­les; and 91 in Glen­dale.

Un­of­fi­cial hourly peaks around the An­te­lope Val­ley in­cluded 105 at Sad­dle­back Butte State Park, 102 in Mo­jave and Rosa­mond, 101 at An­te­lope Val­ley Cal­i­for­nia Poppy Re­serve and 99 in Va­ly­ermo

More of the same is ex­pected to­day and Mon­day be­fore the mer­cury starts to dip a lit­tle as early as Tues­day. To­day’s highs are ex­pected to reach be­tween 96 and 106 de­grees in the Val­ley. Other fore­cast peaks in­clude 87 in down­town Los An­ge­les and Ana­heim, 96 in Pasadena, 97 in Van Nuys and 100 in Va­len­cia.

The beaches will see tem­per­a­tures in the up­per 70s un­til mid-week.
