Cal fall heat wave bringing triple-digit highs
October 1, 2012
LOS ANGELES – California’s in for another day of fiery fall weather.
The National Weather Service says there could be record high temperatures across the state Monday afternoon along with gusty winds in the mountains and extreme fire danger.
Downtown Los Angeles could hit 100, matching a daily record set in 2008. Inland valleys in the San Francisco Bay area could see triple-digits.
On Sunday, LA’s Woodland Hills area hit 103, topping a record set in 2003. Indio had a low of 81, breaking the previous record of 79 set back in 1966.
The weather service says there’s high fire danger through Tuesday in mountains because of hot, dry weather, tinder-dry brush and possible wind gusts of 20 mph or more.
The heat could start to ease Tuesday evening.
