Cold spell brings record low temperatures to Southern California
Southern California has gone from a heat wave to a cold streak, with several cities around the region reporting record low temperatures.
Record lows were reported at Los Angeles International Airport, Lake Arrowhead, Idylwild, Yorba Linda, Escondido and Lake Elsinore, among other places. Some broke records set in the 1920s and 1940s.
The cool weather will continue for the next few days, with lows in the 50s and highs in the mid-70s. Temperatures will increase by the weekend.
The cool weather and high humidity is helping firefighters battling the Sheep fire in San Bernardino County, which broke out Saturday and has burned more than 7,000 acres.
To the north, Mammoth Mountain, Yosemite and Lake Tahoe experienced the first significant snowfall of the season this week.
