Record-Breaking Temperatures Hit Southern California
9 November, 2016
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — For the second day in a row, residents across Southern California roasted in record-breaking temperatures, meteorologists said Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says preliminary record-high temperatures were reached by noon in several Southland locations, including 87 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, breaking the old record of 85 set in 2006.
A record high of 87 degrees was also recorded at Los Angeles International Airport, breaking the old record of 85 set in 2006, while Long Beach saw a record 88 degrees topping the old record of 86 set in 1991.
A wind advisory will remain in effect until 3 p.m. for the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, the Santa Monica Mountains Recreational Area and other Los Angeles County mountains.
High pressure and gusty offshore winds will make driving difficult, especially for drivers of high-profile vehicles.
Strong winds could result in downed trees and power lines, which may result in power outages.
