Midweek Heat Spike Will Last Through Friday

Temperatures in Pasadena, and throughout Los Angeles County, are expected to spike beyond what’s normal on Wednesday and Thursday and the National Weather Service (NWS) said the trend elevates the risk of fire.

Highs in Pasadena are predicted to range from 92 to 98 degrees midweek.

An NWS forecast discussion Tuesday said a large, upper level high that’s currently over Texas, is moving Southern California’s way and will drive the week’s weather pattern before going returning from whence it came.

Through Thursday, afternoon temperatures should jump four to six degrees in Pasadena and environs. Almost all of the lower elevation interior should see triple-digit heat and more than a few valley locations will endure temperatures between 100 degrees and 104 degrees as well, the NWS said.

Wednesday should be sunny and hot, with a high near 98. A calm wind becomes west southwest in the afternoon. Wednesday night should be clear, with a low around 65.

Thursday is predicted to be sunny and hot, with a high near 95. Thursday night should be clear, with a low around 62.

Friday should be sunny, with a high near 92. Friday night should show some patchy fog after 11 p.m., otherwise, it should be mostly cloudy, with a low around 61.

Saturday should have patchy fog in the morning and then should be mostly sunny, with a high near 87. Saturday night should have patchy fog, then should be mostly cloudy, with a low around 60.

Sunday should see patchy fog then should be mostly sunny. Highs should be near 89.
