Triple-digit temperatures recorded across Southern California [Updated]

The heat wave sizzling across Southern California is expected to last at least one more day, forecasters said.

By Tuesday afternoon, temperatures reached 111 in Woodland Hills, 108 in Lancaster, 102 in Pasadena and 95 at the Long Beach Airport, the National Weather Service said.

[Updated at 6:51 p.m.: The 95 degrees at Long Beach Airport broke a record of 94 for this day set in 1985, the weather service said. The 108-degree reading in Lancaster beat a previous record of 106, also set in 1985.]

In Ventura County, temperatures varied from 74 degrees at Point Mugu to 108 degrees in Ojai. In Orange County, temperatures ranged from 84 at Laguna Beach to 98 in Yorba Linda and Anaheim, the weather service said.

In the Inland Empire, Ontario reached 106 degrees and Rialto hit 109.

Bonnie Bartling, a weather specialist, said the heat would last through Wednesday before temperatures begin to drop.

"Thursday will be the transition day," she said. "It will still be hot, but not as hot."

Its only 7:12. Has the heatwave breached the time/space compendium??

"Its only 7:12. Has the heatwave breached the time/space compendium??"

Yes - I blame it on the Large Hadron Collider.

And LA City and Parks had one of their most popular pools closed till 12 noon this week! The Hansen Dam Aquatic Center in Lake View Terrace was closed until 12 noon on the hottest day of the year! Hundreds of extremely dissapointed children and parents were in the parking lot. Some of us drove 45 minutes to get there! Very inconsiderate! Should have closed the pool on the colder days in June & July and stayed open longer in Aug and Sep.

here in tucson it was 106 today, until the monsoon came and lowered it to 76. it's been over 100 or close to it since late may. we haven't roasted yet.

Ugh, it was so nasty in Orange today! We don't have A/C and recently moved from Phoenix, where we were accustomed to blasting the A/C until mid-December. As long as it stays in the 70s here, it's comfortable in our house. But once it gets above 83°F or so... yuck! I had to hide at the mall all day long to keep from melting.

The oil spills, hurricanes, floods, mudslides, and the global heat wave (which have been the cause of many fires, toxic smoke, and deaths) have many searching for answers. The internet is buzzing with articles and excellent blogs. But could it be simply the biblical sequence of God's wrath being poured out upon the earth which is relevant to current events in today's world. What if we are dealing with the wrath of God? Please understand the wrath of God is letting man slip deeper and deeper into the consequences of his own sin. Please visit my website at http://www.revelation-truth.org . Rev. Daniel W.
