Temperature in Studio City Approaches 1958 Record of 101 Degrees

It's hot, hot, hot out there, and close to the record.

Temperatures are approaching the 101 degrees record for Studio City set in 1958 on Wednesday, according to local weather reports.

Temperatures hit 100 degrees (at least that's what it registered on one of the bank buildings) as predicted, by 2:30 in the afternoon, and could inch up to a record that was set more than half a century ago.

Grant Miles, of the Studio City Weather Center, shows a light 6 mph wind gust and absolutely no rain. It was a brisk 58 degrees this morning at 6:14.

Local schools are on extra heat alert and keeping children indoors and in air conditioning.

Meanwhile, there's a heightened danger of wildfire stemming from hot, dry and windy conditions will threaten the Southland today and Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

"The very warm and dry conditions coupled with offshore breezes and very dry fuels will bring elevated fire danger to the Southland through Thursday," warned an NWS advisory.

"Of greatest concern will be Wednesday morning through Thursday morning when offshore winds will bring near-critical fire weather to portion of the mountains and valleys."

The hot weather results in part from an upper-level high pressure system combined with an offshore flow expected to gain strength beginning this morning, according to the weather service.

From this morning until Thursday morning, offshore winds will gust at between 25 and 35 miles per hour in mountain, valley and coastal areas, according to an NWS advisory.

Temperatures will drop over the coming says. Downtown L.A., for instance, will go from a high of 95 today to 88 Thursday and 79 Friday, after which highs will lose a few more degrees.

NWS forecasters urged area residents to wear light, lightweight clothing today and Thursday, drink plenty of nonalcoholic fluids and never leave people or pets in parked vehicles in hot weather, even with the windows down.
