Sizzling Weather Expected For Last Weekend of Summer

Temperatures may reach the mid-80s at the beach and in the South Bay and the 90s on the Westside and in South L.A. County.

A wave of dry heat will sweep over the region Friday and Saturday, pushing temperatures to the mid-80s at the beaches and mid-90s away from the coast before the official start of fall next week.

Temperatures will begin to drop on Sunday and Monday, but forecasted temperatures in the 80s are still higher than normal, according to the National Weather Service

To stay safe in the heat, drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages, wear light-colored and loose-fitting clothing, and never leave pets, children or the elderly in a vehicle. Avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest parts of the day.

In Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, the highs for Friday are about 88 degrees, 94 degrees on Saturday and 83 degrees on Sunday.

In Brentwood, Westwood and Culver City, the highs for Friday are about 91 degrees, 97 degrees on Saturday and 87 degrees on Sunday.

In Santa Monica, Venice, Pacific Palisades and Marina del Rey, the highs for Friday are about 83 degrees, 90 degrees on Saturday and 80 degrees on Sunday.

In the shade, my thermometer hit 103. Now that the sun just started to hit it, it now reads 109.

In the shade, my thermometer hit 103. Now that the sun just started to hit it, it now reads 109. And that is one block from the beach!

Watts, which city are you in?

He's my Long Beach wit! But Watts, were you home in Bluff Park (I think?) for that thermometer reading? I will say I am on the ocean side of the Shore and it is REALLY hot, which can rarely be said.

All kinds of record highs today, according to CNS. How about in your neighborhoods? A record high of 104 degrees was set at Long Beach Airport today, breaking the old record from 1979.

Sorry, my brain was boiling. Bluff Park, one block from the beach. I have a built in air conditioner that I have never used, so now I fear turning it on will stir up too many allergens, so inside it had to be about 115+. I took a photo of the thermometer at 99 degrees in the shade and knew that it was rising, so then I saw it reach 103 in the shade, but waited for the next photo and when the thermometer was half in the sun I took a photo at 109. That was when I had to take off and hit a cold beer at happy hour.

Sorry again. I just realized that this goes to all different towns. Bluff Park is a small neighborhood right next to Belmont Shore in Long Beach.
