It seems like just yesterday that we were trying to escape the heat!
Two weeks later, and another heat wave is coming in with the quickness leaving everyone scrambling to break out the portable fans and sunscreen. Though this heat wave could bring in more record-breaking temperatures, it won’t be as intense as the last one.
You’ll notice things starting to heat up over the weekend, but the real trouble begins on Monday and is estimated to last through Thursday. Weather experts say that coastal areas will be in the high 80s to mid-90s while the valleys and mountain areas will reach the mid-90s all the up to the 100s!
L.A. County’s Public Health Department has issued an alert for Monday and Tuesday of next week. The one factor differentiating the upcoming excruciating temperatures from the last is a mild case of offshore winds.
🚨#HeatAlert issued for #LACounty starting Monday 7/23
