Hot Monday in Burbank. Before 11 a.m., the temperature already in the low 80s and on the rise. The high today in the Media City expected to be in the upper 80s, but could soar into the 90s. The weather service says this is the beginning of a heat wave due to peak on Wednesday with triple digits in the valley.
The gusty winds, which kicked up over the weekend, have calmed down. However, the fire danger remains. A red flag warning went into effect for the valley at 10:17 a.m. today until 8 p.m. on Wednesday. This means low relative humidity, high temps, and strong winds at times.
A cooling trend could take hold by the end of the week for B-town and the rest of the Southland.
