We’re in for another warm day Sunday as we head into another heat wave.
It’ll be sunny with highs in the 80s topping out in the mid-90s. And it should cool overnight to the upper 60s.
But Monday and Tuesday, there are heat advisories from the National Weather Service for parts of our region. It’ll be in the 90s and up to 100 in inland areas on Monday, with meteorologists warning that temperatures will be 8 to 16 degrees above normal.
How long will that heat last? According to the National Weather Service forecast for L.A., there’s some disagreement on that. Initially, meteorologists said Tuesday would be “the hottest day of the stretch and possibly extending the heat into Wednesday.”
Now, some reads of the forecast are calling for cooling Tuesday.  
L.A. Mayor Karen Bass over the weekend cautioned Angelenos to get ready for a “a significant heatwave.”
“I urge Angelenos to take note of the City resources we will have in place to help them stay cool as temperatures may soar into triple digits,” she said in a news release, that included the locations of six cooling centers in the city (see below). Bass said the focus was on the most vulnerable areas for excessive heat.

Open Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
In addition, city officials said all parks and libraries will be open during normal business hours.
For the unhoused people living in the densely populated Skid Row area of downtown, city officials said “climate stations” already are open and provide “a safe environment with cold beverages, seating and activities.”
