Summer is drawing to a close, but Southland has midsummer weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A heat warning from the National Weather Service is in place in the San Fernando Valley through 8 p.m. Wednesday, with temperatures of up to 105 degrees expected. According to the NWS, there will also be unusually warm weather in other valley areas, with temperatures around 10 degrees above normal.
“The temperatures will be much warmer today (Tuesday), with highs well into the 1990s for the coastal valleys, mountains and deserts,” said forecasters. “The hottest air will mainly be the western San Fernando Valley at the typical hot spot with maximum values of over 100 degrees.”
Inland Orange County areas including Santa Ana, Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Fullerton will be under heat counseling from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Conditions should change starting Thursday, with a return of onshore river and the arrival of a low pressure system likely to cool temperatures by Sunday. Forecasters said there could be a slim chance of showers in the area through Friday and Saturday.
As usual, forecasters warned local residents to take precautions when out in the heat, such as drinking plenty of fluids, avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and looking for vulnerable relatives and neighbors.
