Los Angeles County is preparing for a heat wave

Southern California braces for another September heat wave as the temperature is forecast to spike to at least 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday for the area, according to the National Weather Service.

The high temperature on Thursday will be between 90 and 91 degrees, while the high on Friday will be between 90 and 91 degrees, according to the Weather Service’s office in Los Angeles. Friday will be the second-hottest day of the year so far and will be followed by a string of four consecutive days of 90-degree high temperatures, according to the agency.

The last time so many people were experiencing a heat wave like this was July 2003, when the high temperature topped out at 90 degrees in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times called that heat wave the “summit of the century” on its front page.

The heat wave has been called one of the worst on record in the area. Los Angeles County officials said in late July that they were taking measures to combat the heat, which could lead to the evacuation of thousands of people, including residents whose homes are in dangerous heat-zone.

The heat has also been blamed by some residents in the region for a rash of car accidents. One accident occurred on July 26 on the 101 Freeway in Riverside County when a driver in a Toyota with a “high fuel” sticker ran a red light in order to get more gas.

In the wake of those two California freeway accidents, the California Highway Patrol said it would require drivers to pay more attention to the roadways, which will, of course, cause drivers to speed up.

The heat wave has been blamed for an uptick in cases of skin infections and a more severe outbreak of dengue fever across Southern California.

Kara Watson of Pasadena said her son, who has autism, gets a lot of hand eczema every spring, so now that the weather is so hot, it’s getting worse.

“If he can’t stay in the shade, he has to keep going out in a jacket and then another layer of clothing,” Watson said.
