A heat advisory is in effect from 10 a.m. tomorrow until 8 p.m. Thursday for the Santa Clarita, San Fernando, and San Gabriel valleys, as well as downtown Los Angeles, coastal cities and inland Orange County.

Mark Wofford is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He told us:

"Downtown L.A. should be in the 90s, the valleys expecting 100 to 105. We've got some light to moderate Santa Ana winds up in the mountains today. We're not really expecting that tomorrow, it's just going to be hot and, you know, dry."

Wednesday is expected to be the hottest day. Cooling centers are open in L.A. through Friday from noon to 6 p.m.

The heat advisory also extends to San Bernardino and Riverside counties, where highs are expected to reach between 104 and 106 in the Coachella Valley and metropolitan Riverside.
