Heat To Continue One Day More

khts_weather_100degreesThe oppressive heat that blanketed the Southland over the weekend is expected to continue today with slight relief tomorrow and Wednesday, coming back with a vengeance for the weekend, according to predictions from the National Weather Service.

High pressure centered over the desert Southwest will continue to bring hot temperatures across inland areas of Southern California through this week, ranging between 95 and 105 degrees in the Santa Clarita Valley and between 100 and 108 degrees in the Antelope Valley.

High pressure centered over the desert Southwest will continue to bring hot temperatures across inland areas of Southern California through this week, ranging between 95 and 105 degrees in the Santa Clarita Valley and between 100 and 108 degrees in the Antelope Valley.

For the mountains, the combination of temperature and humidities will generate heat index calues of 100 degrees of greater, resulting in excessive heat warnings. Heat index is a measure of discomfort level based on the combination of temperature and humidity.

Temperatures and humidities are expected to drop Tuesday and heat warnings will likely not be needed but temperatures will remain above normal for the rest of the week.

The only relief from the hot temperatures will be along the coastal plain where a combination of onshire flow and a patchy marine layer will moderate temperatures. Interior portions should expect temperatures near 90 through the week.

There will be slight cooling with temperatures remaining above normal Tuesday and Wednesday, with temperatures soaring again Thursday and remaining high through the weekend.

The prolonged heat wave anticipated for inland areas of Southwest California can be dangerous, especially for the elderly, small children and pets. When outdoors, remember to remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water, wear loose-fitting clothing and a hat and remain in the shade or indoors as much as possible.

Never leave children or pets in cars with the windows up or even cracked during the day, even for a very short time, as temperatures can quickly reach lethal levels.
