Another hot day in Burbank

Summer is back in full swing. Another hot day in Burbank. The temperature rose quickly this morning. Before 10 a.m. it was into the 80s. Some weather predictions are saying mid-to-upper 90s for the high in the Media City on this Monday. However, it feels like we’re headed for triple digits — so take precautions to stay cool.

After blistering hot weekend, cooler temps on the way

A lot of record-breaking heat in Burbank over the past few days, but a cooling trend, ever so slight, is expected to kick in today. Yesterday, the temperature soared to 100 in B-town — tied the previous record set on October 11 in 1971.  Also, a record high temperature of 104 set in Burbank on Friday — broke an old record of 101 set in 1976. By 11 a.m. this morning, the temperature had jumped to 90 in the Media City. Weather watchers are predicting a high in... Read More →

Triple digit heat in Burbank today

Summer-like temperatures returned with a vengeance today. At 2 p.m. it was 102 in the Media City. Some weather watchers are saying it could get even hotter — before the day is done. Temperatures are sizzling throughout the Southland. The National Weather Service says the heat and the drought conditions could mean trouble: “The combination of hot and dry weather… and gusty northeast winds will create heightened fire danger in the mountains and valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties today.” Lows tonight in Burbank...

Still hot today in Burbank, cooler temps predicted

Another hot and sunny day in Burbank, but a cooling trend has kicked in. However, don’t expect a serious drop in the temps on this the second day of summer. By the end of last week, the Media City was sizzling with highs in the 90s. For the next few days, the weather watchers are predicting afternoon temps in the 80s for B-town. Hmm, it’s already 82 in Burbank at 11 a.m. — hopefully, the cooling trend has not stalled.

Cloudy skies and rain in Burbank

Cloudy skies over Burbank on this Sunday morning. Some light rain began shortly after 10 a.m. A storm system is expected to linger over the Southland today and that could mean raindrops during the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony and hoopla in Hollywood. A steady rain is in the forecast for this evening and overnight. Cooler temperatures for the Media City with the high only in the 50s. So you’ll probably need a jacket or sweater as well  as an umbrella.

Updated: Second day of fall — hot temps in Burbank

On this the second day of fall, the temperature shot up to 80 degrees before noon  in Burbank. The high today in the Media City expected to be near 90. For those having to work outside, like the Burbank city crews pruning giant Ficus trees on Magnolia Boulevard, it’s going to be a tough day. It probably feels more like triple digit temps to the tree trimmers who are wearing a ton of clothing and gear. For several weeks, crews have been pruning the city trees up and... Read More →

Major change in weather, cloudy skies and mild temps today

What a difference a week makes. Overcast skies and temperatures in the 60s this morning in Burbank. The sun broke through this afternoon and the high could reach the upper 80s.
