By 10 a.m., it was already 80 in Van Nuys, 88 in the Santa Clarita Valley and 95 in Lancaster. In general, today should see highs in the 70s at the beaches and into the 80s and 90s more inland, according to the National Weather Service. Some areas in the Valley could break triple digits. The rest of the week should be slightly less brutal, but only slightly. The ultraviolet index today is 11, which means at noon, when the sun's rays are at their strongest, a fair skinned person could get burned in about four minutes without protection. Any index number above 10, the highest number on the chart, is considered to be "a very high exposure level reading."
