Just How Hot is it Going to Get? Uh, Really Hot.
A tip for those who struggle with small talk: Open with "Ohmigod it's too hot these days!" and the conversation will flow from there. We are, indeed, in a heat wave, and we can expect "several more days of torrid temperatures," along with "an excessive heat warning," from the National Weather Service, according to the Daily Breeze. Today we can add humidity to the high temps, causing a heat index that is a veritable hotbed for heat-related illnesses. Keep it cool, Los Angeles! Stay hydrated, avoid long periods of time outdoors, and pay close attention to the elderly, pets, and kids. Downtown temps will be in the high 80s, 90s to 100s in the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys, and high 70s at the beaches.
