Get ready for another day of seeing your L.A. friends' Facebook statuses being about how effing, stinking hot they are, because this heat wave is not leaving us today. In fact, we're expected to hit the ol' triple digit mark in many parts of Los Angeles today.

Those 100-degree temps will likely happen in the San Fernando Valley and the Inland Empire, while even the beaches will sizzle with temps in the low- to mid-80s. Yesterday's temp of 97 degrees in Downtown was 13 degrees above the normal average of 84 degrees.

Bonus: Humidity that's expected to stick around at least another day or two, and an elevated fire danger.

It's not going to stay this way forever, though. You can expect to hear grumblings about chilly temps and rain as soon as this weekend, thanks to a large low pressure system moving in, according to the National Weather Service.
