Oh No...Another Heat Wave Is Back This Week
If you took out your fall sweaters in anticipation of cooler weather in SoCal, you might want to put them away for now. Another heat wave is hitting Los Angeles midweek.
We're looking at temperatures 20 degrees above normal and even some areas reaching the triple digits by the weekend, according to the L.A. Times.
Central L.A. will be climbing to the low 90s by the end of the week, and regions like the inland area and valleys will hit the 100s this upcoming weekend.
Saturday is supposed to be the hottest day and then things will start cooling down by Sunday.
Remember to stay hydrated and cool. (Someone with A/C or a pool will be your new best friend.) If you suspect someone is suffering from heat stroke, contact 9-1-1. Here are some tips on how to deal with a heat stroke and how to recognize symptoms of one. And whatever you do, don't leave your child or pet in a car—not even for a couple minutes.
