Hotter weather on its way to Southern California

Say goodbye to the mild and windy weather of Father’s Day weekend. Hotter temperatures are announced right on time for the first week of summer.

Monday’s initial heat wave is expected to send temperatures several degrees above normal, reaching 83 in downtown Los Angeles, 94 in Palmdale and 100 in Woodland Hills, said David Gomberg, a weather forecaster with the Oxnard Bureau of the National Weather Service .

Further inland, temperatures could reach 96 in Riverside and 97 in San Bernardino, according to National Weather Service forecasts released Sunday afternoon.

The warmer, drier weather, combined with occasional winds, will create an increased fire risk in the region’s interior areas for the remainder of the week, Gomberg said.

Although there is currently no heat warning, he recommended that children and the elderly stay out of the sun between 10am and 4pm during the peak heat. Everyone should remember to stay hydrated and move to air-conditioned rooms whenever possible, he said.

Pets and children should not be left in the car, Gomberg added.

The heat should ease off somewhat on Tuesday, the first day of summer, remaining closer to the coast in the 70s and low 80s, while staying in the upper 80s or 90s in the region’s interior and valleys for most of the week. The heat will rise again as early as Friday, Gomberg said.

“It looks like [Monday] will be one of the hottest days,” he said. “And then on Saturday and Sunday of next weekend it could be up to 100 in some valleys.”
