A heat warning has been put in place for the Antelope Valley and other mountain-elevated cities as they are expected to see triple digits for the next week or longer. Experts are providing advice and ways to reduce your exposure to direct sunlight and how to keep cool while running errands.
On Tuesday, August 29, a heat warning went into effect in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, as temperatures spiked up to 107 degrees and nightfall temperatures were in the high 70's and low 80s. A less severe heat advisory was placed in the Santa Clarita Valley, Palos Verdes Hills, San Gabriel Mountains, and the Antelope Valley on Tuesday, as temperatures reached upwards to 105 degrees, with overnight cooling in the 60s and 70s.
"The city is preparing resources to help Angelenos stay safe during the heat expected this week," Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass posted Sunday on social media. "Augmented cooling centers will open from 10 am-9 pm Monday and Tuesday. As a reminder, our 73 LA Public Library's are designated cooling centers."
