Southern California Heat Wave Breaks Records

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Temperature records are beginning to fall as a heat wave broils Southern California.

The National Weather Service says downtown Los Angeles broke the July 6 record when it hit 95 degrees at 10:15 a.m. Friday, besting the old record of 94 set in 1992.

The mercury continues to rise and is flirting with the century mark. Downtown is forecast to top out at 106.
