Excessive heat warning issued

Portland Metro Sunday weather: Heat advisory, patchy smoke and high of 96

And while the mercury will skyrocket Monday, temperatures are expected to be even higher Tuesday and Wednesday, with meteorologists predicting the heat to peak Tuesday for areas west of the mountains and on Wednesday farther inland.

A heat advisory is in effect for Sunday morning through Monday night for inland valleys in the San Francisco Bay Area, National Weather Service officials said today. Highs are predicted to reach 97 degrees in Downtown L.A., 103 in Pasadena and Burbank, 104 in San Gabriel, 106 in Fullerton and Yorba Linda, 107 in Saugus and Lancaster and 109 in Woodland Hills. A high rip current risk is in effect at beaches on the Los Angeles county coast from now through Tuesday, August 29th.

In the map pictured below, the purple color means "Excessive Heat Warning", while the orange color represents a "Heat Advisory".

The heat wave, which is being caused by a "goliath" high-pressure system moving south from northern Nevada to southern Nevada, already reached San Diego County's deserts on Sunday.

A sweltering heat wave will blanket Southern California through the middle of the week, elevating fire danger and likely breaking many heat records, according to forecasters.

But fire weather advisories are not expected because the region won't experience a combination of high heat, high winds and low humidity. The interior of a vehicle parked in hot weather can rapidly reach lethal levels.

A list of cooling centers for the Los Angeles County area can be found here.

Angelenos were also advised to save energy during the heat wave to help avoid electricity shortages.
