“Not at all,” Wilson said, “but you tolerate it.”
On Sunday and Monday, heat advisories kick in for parts of the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys. Areas in and near the Inland Empire will also be battling high temperatures.
Another Woodland Hills resident summed up the sentiment for the day.
“I don’t like the heat,” she said. “I’m ready for the heat to leave actually.”
If you’re heading out, don’t forget to bring plenty of water and make sure to pay extra attention to kids and pets as temps rise. And in addition to the health hazard, the extreme temperatures also create dangerous fire conditions, which is always something to keep in mind, especially if grilling out over the next few days.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Related Hospitalizations Continue To Drop In Los Angeles County
