LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Angelenos Sunday faced another day of record or near record temperatures amid an ongoing heat wave affecting several western states.
The National Weather Service (NWS) canceled an excessive heat warning at 3:30 p.m. for the Los Angeles County valleys and downtown. That warning, however, remained in effect for the Antelope Valley, including the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, through Monday morning.
CBS2 Meteorologist Kaj Goldberg predicted that afternoon temperatures would climb to 110 degrees in the valleys; 113 in the desert; and 96 in the Los Angeles Basin. Temperatures along the coast were expected to reach the upper 70s.
And as KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reported, the excessive heat conditions raised concerns over potential fire dangers.
