4-Day Heat Wave Kicks Off In SoCal With Record-Breaking Heat

Heat wave set to bake the county

The National Weather Service says Waco officially reported a high temperature of 114 degrees around 5 p.m., beating the city's previous all-time record of 112 degrees set in August 11, 1969.

Weather officials forecast that the Lake Berryessa region of Napa County will also be hot both days.

The heat warning extended to southeastern California, including desert communities such as El Centro, Palm Springs, Twentynine Palms and Blythe, as well as north to Las Vegas and other parts of Nevada.

The San Diego area endured some wilting temperatures Monday- almost 120 degrees in one desert locale - at the outset of an intense summer hot spell that promises even more extreme heat before it's over. Still, it was so hot in Las Cruces on Monday morning that afternoon school bus service was canceled.

Officials recommend that residents set their thermostat at 78 degrees or higher, cool off with fans, turn off unnecessary lights and appliances and use major appliances in the morning or late evening. This warning was issued for the Tucson metro area and includes the cities of Ajo, Sells, Nogales, Tucson, Green Valley, Marana, Vail, Picacho Peak State Park, Mammoth, Oracle, Sierra Vista, Benson, Willcox, Clifton, and Safford. The heat wave could also lead to power outages caused by strained air conditioners.

"Nationwide, heat is the #1 weather-related killer", it warned.

"I'm hoping to stay in the air conditioning all day, and I'm planning to take it easy", Lisa Kirby said, who was visiting from Rhode Island for a conference.

The Los Angeles County of Public Health has issued a heat alert in various areas. By mid-week, monsoonal moisture will move back into the area and drop temperatures.
