Heat Wave Check: Temps Reach 99 in Downtown
It reached 99 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach and Woodland Hills this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. Going further than that, Fullerton and Palm Springs each broke into triple digits. For the most part, valleys, inland and even some beachside areas remained in the low to high 90s. Today's ultraviolet index level is 10, which means "a fair skinned person could suffer a sunburn in about four minutes if not protected," the Service warns. Stay cool and use that sunscreen!
