Temperatures are expected to remain in the triple digits through Thursday, prompting weather forecasters to issue an “excessive heat” watch for most of the valley and foothill areas.
Temperatures could get as high as 108 degrees today, with the same forecast for Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Not until Friday are temperatures forecast to come down back into the low-90s range.
Public health officials have warned residents to be extra mindful of outdoor pets and elderly neighbors who are among the most susceptible to heat-related illnesses. Utilities, like Glendale Water & Power, also urged customers to conserve energy during peak demand times should the need to export power to other agencies arise.
