First Heat Advisory Of This Fall Hits LA
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."
- You can call 3-1-1 within the city of L.A to find locations or visit: L.A.'s Emergency Management.
- Cooling centers run by the county are available at: Ready LA County
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.
In addition to the heat, Red Flag Warnings also are in place thoughout much of the state. In the mountains of Ventura and L.A. counties, a warning is currently in place through 5 p.m. tonight. In the Inland Empire, the warning is in place through tomorrow.
This is not a particularly strong Santa Ana event, but vegetation is critically dry.— NWS San Diego (@NWSSanDiego) September 28, 2020
We've seen dangerous fire behavior this summer on the El Dorado and Valley fires, even without Red Flag Warning conditions.
Stay vigilant, and use common sense around dry vegetation. #cawx pic.twitter.com/CYYTBPj4a2
