A July 4th weekend heat wave is moving into Southern California that will bring temperatures in some areas that could hit 110 degrees.
The National Weather Service issued heat warnings for large swaths of the region, warning people to avoid strenuous outdoor activities.
Inland valley areas will see the hottest temperatures. Officials said the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys could hit the century mark and the Antelope Valley could see temperatures up to 110 degrees. Even the Hollywood Hills could see temperatures in the high 90s.
Beaches will be cooler, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
Inland Orange County should also get into the 90s.
Temperatures are not expected to cool until sometime next week.

Question: What are some tips for avoiding heat-related illnesses?
Answer: Drink plenty of water but avoid caffeine and alcohol, which cause fluid loss. Drink fruit juice or sports drinks to replace salt and minerals lost through sweat. Take advantage of shade and air conditioning. Children, the elderly and pets should never be left in an enclosed vehicle, even briefly. The temperature can quickly rise to life-threatening levels even with the windows partly open.
