LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Summer has finally arrived — with a vengeance.
More record-breaking heat is expected as California swelters under triple-digit temperatures for a third day.
The National Weather Service is issuing warnings of high heat
and humidity Wednesday in Central and Southern California
mountains, valleys and deserts. A lesser heat advisory is in place
for San Jose and interior valleys around San Francisco Bay.
Los Angeles will see highs in the 90s but the weather service
says it will hit 105 in the San Fernando Valley.
There’s also a 20-percent chance of an afternoon thunderstorm in
the mountains, which could bring lightning and a chance of
Record highs were reported in several locations Tuesday. Weather
service meteorologist Eric Boldt says a few records could be broken
again Wednesday before temperatures drop Thursday.
