LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Southern California’s heat wave is expected to stick around, bringing with it humidity and triple-digit temperatures.
The National Weather Service predicted that Sunday will be the hottest day of this mid-summer heat wave.
According to forecasters, “dangerous heat” will develop over the valleys and the Inland Empire, where temperatures are expected to top 109 degrees.
Highs will range from near 80 at the beaches to almost 100 at the LA and Santa Ana civic centers. Highs near 110 can be expected in the hottest corners of the valleys.
A low pressure trough, though, moving in from the Pacific Ocean is on the horizon, which will mean cooler temperatures by Wednesday.
In the meantime, health officials urge Angelenos to stay hydrated, wear light, loose-fitting clothing and keep pets indoor.
