Just How Hellishly Hot Will It Be Today?
No doubt you noticed that it was really, really, really warm in Los Angeles over this weekend, with temps in some spots soaring into the high 90s and even cracking the century mark and breaking records. We aren't going to get a break from the hot hot heat yet, alas, so enjoy your office AC today and keep hydrated, because temps are still going to be way up there.
It's barely mid-May, and we are already fringing on the ol' fry an egg on the sidewalk kind of temps we see in the summer. Today, across the L.A. area, we're going to see temps up in the 90s and 100s, according to the National Weather Service, who note we're going to be up at record levels for high temps.
In the San Gabriel Valley it's going to be 93 to 101, and in the San Fernando Valley 94 to 102, with a similar range of temps for the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area. In the Santa Clarita Valley you're looking at temps from 98 to 103. Elsewhere in L.A. County inland temps will be in the mid 80s to mid 90s, and, if you are so lucky, just around the low 70s at the beaches.
