Skooter reporting 07/12/12

Weather forecasters reported Wednesday was hot in parts of the San Fernando Valley, the mercury rose to 105 degrees and Thursday it won't be much cooler. Today there is an excessive heat warnings and a continuing fire weather watch.

Bonnie Bartling, a weather specialist at the National Weather Service in Oxnard said that there will be a slight cool down Thursday, but the humidity would continue to increase, so they don’t think it’ll feel cooler. And by Wednesday afternoon, traditional hot spots such as Woodland Hills shot up to 105 degrees, with Chatsworth striking 104, Northridge topping 103, Van Nuys reaching 101 and Burbank tailing at 97.

In downtown area trailed at 87, a little bit above the norm of 85 for this time of year, but well below the all-time record of 113 set Sept. 27, 2011.

In the high desert the temperatures peaked at 111 degrees in Lancaster, a new record for that city.

The high pressure system over Utah was responsible for the heat, forecasters said. There will be a slight chance of thunderstorms in the mountains and in the desert brought about by monsoonal moisture from Mexico.
