Buckle up, Southlanders, the summer is here. The LA Times reports that temperatures are set to leap upwards this week in various regions. The San Fernando, San Gabriel, and Antelope valleys could reach temperatures of up to 105 degrees due to circular winds that are pulling in hot air from Northern Mexico. City dwellers - rejoice: these winds are set to miss areas closer to the coasts.

Signs of summer are busting out all over, as firefighters do battle with brushfires throughout the region. The largest fire is a 5,000 acre blaze located in Verbenia, west of Palm Springs. According to KNBC, it's currently 25% contained. Let's all wish the best for these awesome public servants as they work against the flames and the effects of heat exhaustion.
