#Heatwave

7:52am

The region’s heat wave will keep temperatures abnormally high today, though a little lower than Tuesday, when several heat records were set.

Offshore Santa Ana winds will persist but not blow as fiercely as
earlier this week, according to forecasters, who said more highs are expected in the high 80s and low 90s today. The heat, accompanied by wind and by low humidity, will keep the danger of wildfire elevated, but no red flag warnings are in effect.

On Tuesday, the downtown L.A. high of 89 broke the previous record for a February 9, of 85 which was set in 2006. The 88-degree high at LAX broke the date’s previous record of 85 set in 2006, according to the National Weather Service.

Records were also set at UCLA, where the temperature reached 90,
breaking the previous record of 85 set in 2006; Long Beach, where the high was 92, breaking the previous record of 86 set in 1991; and the northwest Los Angeles County community of Sandberg where the high of 68 broke the previous record of 67 set in 1951.

Temperatures will remain above normal into the weekend but ease today as offshore flow diminishes. The NWS forecast sunny skies today and highs of 67 in Avalon: 73 in Palmdale; 75 in Lancaster; 76 on Mount Wilson; 77 in Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and San Clemente; 83 in Saugus; 84 in Irvine; 86 in Anaheim; 87 in
Fullerton; 85 at LAX; 87 in Long Beach; 88 in downtown L.A., Woodland Hills and Mission Viejo; 89 in Burbank; 90 in Pasadena; and 91 in Yorba Linda and San Gabriel.

Thursday’s temperatures will be marginally higher in the Antelope
Valley but a little lower everywhere else. Still, temperatures will be above normal for several more days.
