Triple digit heat hits San Gabriel Valley

A heat wave has hit Southern California this week with temperatures topping 100 degrees in Los Angeles yesterday. Strong winds will accompany the heat through Friday, prompting red flag warnings for increased fire danger.
There will be little relief at the coasts as the weather system brings hot air from the east to the west, heating up beach communities like Santa Monica to over 90 degrees.
It’s expected to be in triple digits through Friday, with temperatures 15-20 degrees higher than average.
The spike is caused by a storm system that moved through the Northwest and dumped rain and snow over the Rockies last weekend. When that low pressure system meets a high pressure system over California – it creates the Santa Ana winds.
