Not So Fast, Fall: We're Getting Another Heat Wave

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Just when you started unpacking your Fall sweaters and cozying up next to your fireplace while sipping on some hot apple cider, we're getting another heat wave.

Don't let the rainy and gloomy weather over the weekend fool you (even though there's still a 20% chance of rain in the central L.A. area today), because by the end of this week, it'll be just as hot as you remembered it being a week ago when you're sweating on your couch in your underwear facing the fan.

The National Weather Service tells City News Service that the downtown L.A. area will be creeping up from 79 degrees on Tuesday all the way to 92 on Friday, and a whopping 97 on Saturday and Sunday. And as usual, it won't be any better in the Valley either, which will have temps up in the low 100s by the weekend.

Enjoy the coolish weather today as we'll have some partly cloudy skies with temps in the low to mid 70s from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown L.A. and Woodland Hills. Make use of that fleece pullover while you can.
