LOS ANGELES (AP) – There’s no relief in sight for Californians as weather officials warn the heat wave will extend into Tuesday night – and maybe longer.
National Weather Service Spokesman John Dumas says many parts of California will experience high temperatures until at least 9 p.m. Tuesday.
To make matters worse, Dumas says cooling ocean breezes haven’t been traveling far enough inland overnight to fan Southern California’s overheated valleys and deserts.
Burbank set a record overnight low with temperatures dipping to 74 degrees overnight, much warmer than the previous record of 68 degrees for Saturday’s early hours.
In Northern California, temperatures Saturday were expected to reach the 80s in San Francisco, upper 90s in San Jose and into the triple digits inland, about 20 degrees above typical highs in the Bay area.
