EASTVALE (CBSLA.com) — While Monday’s brief thunderstorms made for expectations of a pleasant drop in temperatures for many Southland residents, those working outside found less of a break.
In Eastvale, where brief rainfall disappeared as quickly as it had arrived, conditions almost immediately returned to hot and muggy. Residents tell CBS2’s Tom Wait that they could feel the extreme heat and began sweating almost as soon as they stepped outdoors.
The tease of rainfall, mixed with the extreme heat, are similar conditions to what many residents in the Midwest might feel throughout summer.
Californians, however, are not as used to them.
“Today is unusually humid,” concrete worker John Adams said. “I haven’t seen it like this in a while. I went to school in Florida, and it kind of reminds me of Florida a little bit.
“There’s just heat,” another resident said. “Hot, moisture, all day long.”
The humidity makes temperatures feel even warmer than they actually are, and residents are urged to prepare and stay hydrated with plenty of water.
