LOS ANGELES, CA — Triple-digit heat is cooking much of the the SanFernando Valley Tuesday, prompting warnings for residents to take precautions such as checking in on vulnerable neighbors and loved ones.
According to the National Weather Service, Northridge reached 101 degrees Tuesday afternoon, while temperatures around the rest of the San Fernando Valley hovered in the 93 to 100-degree range. The evening won’t bring much relief with temperatures expected to remain warm overnight, hovering in the upper 60s throughout the San Fernando Valley.
Temperatures of 108 degrees in the county’s Antelope Valley was expected to tie or break records Tuesday, prompting an excessive heat warning. A less-severe excessive heat advisory will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the Santa Clarita Valley and Los Angeles County mountains.
“A persistent ridge of high pressure aloft over the region will result in very warm to hot temperatures from the valleys and inland through Tuesday with some cooling on Wednesday,” according to the National Weather Service.
“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors,” forecasters advised. “Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.”
The NWS also issued its standard warnings against strenuous outdoor activity and urged people to wear lightweight clothing and know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
A gradual cool-down is expected throughout the week with temperatures in the San Fernando Valley dropping to the mid to low 90s by Saturday.
