Welcome to another heat wave. Triple-digit temperatures on tap for Southern California, with record highs in the high 60s, will likely keep everyone inside. But by noon, the heat should start to break.
A few places in the Southland will see their record lows. Los Angeles has a chance for a mild day — but then it gets humid, and humidity is a huge problem in Southern California.
By late afternoon, most of California will have had time to feel the heat. There’s a chance that the heat will break by then and the weather will continue to be hot and dry.
A good day to be outside and enjoy the weather?
Check out the list below for a few California records that will be broken this weekend.
Los Angeles: 92 degrees, 1 mph wind chill
A low of 92 degrees is on the list. I know that’s cold for Los Angeles, but it doesn’t feel like it. And the forecast is pretty good. Still, the wind will be blowing — and it will be the first time in the history of the climate of Los Angeles that such a strong wind has blown in the forecast.
The last high of 92 degrees was in July 1994.
Long Beach: 99 degrees, 10 mph wind chill
Long Beach’s high will be just slightly lower than that. I’m looking forward to the cool breeze, which will feel really good.
The last time it was this warm in November or December was in 1994 on the 10th.
And the last time the low was a 10 mph wind chill was in November 1997, with a low of 89 degrees.
San Jose: 91 degrees, 15 mph wind chill
There’s also the chance that the wind will be blowing in San Jose this weekend. It’s usually cold enough at this time of year that a lot of people want to go outside and enjoy the weather.
The forecast is good for a high of 91 degrees. The last time it was this hot was in 1993 in January.
Tacoma: 90 degrees, 11 mph wind chill
It’s a pretty good day for Tacoma, except there will be wind in the forecast.
The average high temperature has been in the high 80s for Tacoma for the last few years, so there’s a shot at an even
