Temperatures are heating up in Southern California, with triple-digit highs expected Sunday and Monday in some areas.
The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory through 8 p.m. Sunday for the San Gabriel and Santa Clarita valleys, and Los Angeles County mountains. However, a similar advisory for the San Fernando Valley has been canceled.
“The extended period of hot temperatures creates a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are possible, especially for the elderly and people outdoors that do not remain hydrated,” warned the NWS statement. “Temperatures inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.”
The weather service advised area residents to “Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.”
Sunday’s highs are expected to reach 87 in downtown Los Angeles and Anaheim, 96 in Pasadena, 97 in Van Nuys, 100 in Valencia and 102 in Palmdale.
More of the same is expected Monday before the mercury starts to dip a little as early as Tuesday.
The beaches will see temperatures in the high 70s Sunday and Monday, then drop to the low- to mid-70s the rest of the week.
Saturday’s highs reached 88 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, 91 in Glendale, and 104 degrees in Palmdale and Santa Clarita.
