Triple-digit heat expected to hit record high in Alhambra

Slather on some extra sunscreen this weekend, Alhambra! A heat wave is heading to Southern California.

Temperatures in Alhambra are expected to hit a high of 101 degrees on Saturday, 104 degrees on Sunday, and 106 degrees on Monday, according to The Weather Channel. Monday's expected temperature is one degree higher than the record high for that date — it hit 105 on Sept. 15, 1983 — and 6 degrees below September's all-time record high of 112.

Stay healthy and safe during a heat wave by drinking plenty of fluids, staying indoors, and avoiding strenuous activities during the hottest part of the day, the American Red Cross recommends. If you have to work outside, take frequent breaks and wear light, loose-fitting clothing.

If you don't have air conditioning and would like to take a rest from the heat this weekend, try a Los Angeles County cooling center. These free centers provide the public a place to stay comfortably cool in the heat. The Joslyn Center in Alhambra is the nearest cooling center and offers air conditioning and a water fountain.

There are six cooling centers in the west San Gabriel Valley:

  • Alhambra: Joslyn Adult Recreation Center, 210 N. Chapel Ave.
  • Pasadena: Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St.
  • San Gabriel: Asian Youth Center, 100 W. Clary Ave.
  • South Pasadena: South Pasadena Senior Center, 1102 Oxley St.
  • South Pasadena: South Pasadena Public Library, 1100 Oxley St.
  • Monterey Park: Langley Senior Citizen Center, 400 W. Emerson Ave.
