Los Angeles — The day after the start of Daylight Saving Time, (click here for 12 hour loop temperatures will climb into the 90s in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, forecasters said.
The high will be 92 degrees Monday in Woodland Hills, 91 in Saugus and 90 in Burbank, according to the National Weather Service. Woodland Hills is forecast to hit 90 on Friday, but Saugus and Burbank will remain in the 80s through Saturday.
Elsewhere, temperatures will be in the 60s, 70s and 80s today.
The above-normal heat is the result of a strong ridge of upper-level high pressure that has been parked over the region for several days, pushing down the air and, in this way, causing it to warm up.
In spite of the heat and some wind, no wildfire warnings have been issued. The consensus is that, after heavy rains earlier this year, what is usually dry vegetation constituting highly combustible fire fuel is now suffused with enough moisture to stave off high risks of wildfire, according to NWS meteorologists.
Daylight Saving Time began at 2 a.m. Sunday, turning clocks an hour ahead and resulting in the “loss” of an hour. The time change makes for darker mornings and lighter evenings.
Today’s forecasted high temperatures in Los Angeles County are:
Burbank: 90
Downtown L.A.: 85
