Is the Heat Wave Over?

The recent heatwave was expected to transition to cooler temperatures beginning last Saturday, but there was no such luck, forcing weather forecasters to say today would be that day as the Valley would get a much needed marine layer (as of 8:30 a.m., skies are blue here in the Valley). If correct, instead of triple digits that became the norm the past four days, parts of the Valley would start to feel a lot cooler. Woodland Hills is expected to have a high of 92 degrees while just a few miles east in Sherman Oaks, the high should be 83.
It became like a broken record throughout the end of last week and the weekend as the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power kept on announcing record high energy consumption statistics and around 2000 homes in the Valley with power outages.
And just in time for the weekend, temperatures are to spike again starting Friday into the 90s.
