A hot spell is expected to keep its grip on Los Angeles through much of the week.
A high pressure system will continue to send temperatures spiking through Friday—and possibly into Labor Day weekend—with the mercury in some neighborhoods topping 100 degrees.
A welcome but unexpected and “stubborn” morning marine layer, however, is cooling off the coast. Because of the fog, the National Weather Service has canceled its heat advisories and excessive heat warnings.
But there will not be relief in the Valley and neighborhoods around Downtown LA, where temperatures will soar 10 to 18 degrees above normal for the next three to four days.
“Areas away from the coast will sizzle, and the heat warnings there look good with relentless triple digit heat and warm overnight lows,” says the Weather Service.
The hottest days will be today and Tuesday, with highs from 100 to 111 degrees in the Valley and 85 to 103 degrees elsewhere.
