LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Cooling centers will be open across the Southland Thursday to help residents cope with excessive heat.

Temperatures are expected to top 100 degrees, as a monsoonal flow brings both heat and humidity to Southern California.

The UV index will be at a 10 Thursday, which means those with fair skin can burn after just four minutes outside.

Health experts recommend staying indoors with the air conditioner on, wearing light, loose-fitting clothes and hydrating frequently.

If you do need to go outside, wear sunscreen, a hat, and watch for any signs of heat stroke or exhaustion.

Temperatures aren’t expected to drop until the middle of next week.
