According to the Weather Service, a record high temperature for March 31 was set today in downtown Los Angeles with the thermometer spiking a red-hot 92 degrees. The former title holder, a year called 1966, maxed out 90 degrees.

Elsewhere in the region, a high temp record was broken at Santa Maria Airport when the meter read 88. The old record of 86 degrees has been on the throne since in 1931.
