Start of October and Heat Not Backing Down


Yuma, AZ - It is October but the heat is not backing down in our area. The National Weather Service in Phoenix says very warm temperatures about 8 to 10 degrees above normal will continue through mid week.

All low elevations can expect to reach or exceed triple digits through Wednesday. KSWT Chief Meteorologist Garry Frank is watching a change that could bring some relief later in the week and will have more on KSWT News 13.    

We are not alone. The National Weather Service in California says there could be record high temperatures across the state Monday afternoon along with gusty winds in the mountains and extreme fire danger. 

Downtown Los Angeles could hit 100, matching a daily record set in 2008. Inland valleys in the San Francisco Bay area could see triple-digits. 

On Sunday, LA's Woodland Hills area hit 103, topping a record set in 2003. Indio had a low of 81, breaking the previous record of 79 set back in 1966.
