Photo Gallery: Hot summer-like weather heats up the Southland

Photo: FLLewis/A Writer’s Groove – Burbank Get out those shorts and tee shirts; we’re getting a preview of summer. Today the temperatures climbed into the mid-80s in Burbank. Tomorrow the high is expected to leap 10 degrees to 95, maybe even into triple digits!  Weather forecasters say this blast of summer could linger for a few days.  So for workout warriors who like to exercise outside in the sunshine, the best advice is to do it early and keep the water bottle handy.

The holiday noshing is over; the business of working off those extra pounds is well underway for a lot of folks. I was out this week, huffing and puffing my way through the Burbank foothills along with other walkers and joggers. This morning, when I stepped outside it was around 45 in Burbank.
