Record heat tops 110 degrees in Alhambra

It may officially be fall, but Southern California is sizzling.

Alhambra temperatures were recorded to soaring to more than 110 degrees today. By midday downtown LA temperatures reached 113 degrees. Stuart Seto, a forecaster for the National Weather Service, told the LA Times that's a record high and  "the hottest temperature recorded at the downtown station since record-keeping began in 1877."


"In Pasadena, the day-time record is 106 degrees and in San Gabriel the record is 108," Seto told the Pasadena Star-News. "Both cities' high thus far today is 106."


The Weather Service sent out a warning about extreme heat and a red-flag fire warning. "Young and old need to stay hydrated because they have more difficulty then middle-age people as we can," said Ray Mosack, Assistant Chief of the Alhambra Fire Department. "Stay cool, and stay in the shade. And don’t work out. We even tell our crews stay inside today. Last night we were in South Pasadena fighting a brush fire for two or three hours. It was still in the 90s last night."

The city opened an official cooling center at the Jocelyn Center and an unofficial one emerged at City Hall where the city set up some chairs for people looking to beat the heat.

Tomorrow's temperatures are predicted to be a tad cooler — around 99 degrees.

  1. I can’t believe it! I have lived in Alhambra for 18 years and I never saw temperatures above 110. Now I’m in Vermont and I find it so odd that while everyone in LA is melting, I am here shivering. It has been raining for 4 hours straight. Have fun cooling down.
