WEATHER REPORT
California roasts under record-setting temperatures

Los Angeles (AFP) Oct 25, 2017


An excessive heat warning has been issued in California through Wednesday as the state bakes under extreme temperatures that are shattering records.

Downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday broke the 1909 record of 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37.2) set for that day as temperatures rose to 104 Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) by early afternoon according to the National Weather Service.

Record-shattering temperatures were also recorded in many other cities across the southern part of the state including Long Beach (105 degrees Fahrenheit) and Santa Barbara (96 degrees Fahrenheit).

The unusual late season heat wave prompted officials in Los Angeles to issue warnings to baseball fans attending game one of the World Series at Dodger Stadium, urging them to "bring lots of water to the game."

Temperatures for the evening were expected to dip to 97 degrees Fahrenheit.

The National Weather Service said the dangerous heat was expected through Wednesday when temperatures would begin easing.

"This is a very unusual late season heat wave and should not be taken lightly!" it said.

The scorching heat comes as the state is recovering from a series of massive wildfires that devastated northern California's wine region earlier this month and killed more than 40 people.
