Back to the 90s: November Heat Melts Records in Southern California

Temperatures will hit the 90s again during an autumn heat wave that has already set or tied Southern California weather records.

Tuesday's 93-degree high at Long Beach Airport broke the previous record of 91 set in 1996. The Los Angeles neighborhood of Woodland Hills tied a 2014 record with a high of 94.

Wednesday's forecast highs are 92 in downtown Los Angeles and 93 in Pasadena. The record high for Nov. 9 of 94 degrees was set in downtown LA in 1996.

Other heat records that were set or tied Tuesday included a 93-degree high at Long Beach Airport, which broke the previous record of 91 set in 1996. The high of 94 in Woodland Hills tied the record set in 2014.

The heat is accompanied by pounding waves, leading officials to issue a high surf advisory for several Southern California beaches. West and northwest-facing beaches could see surf between 12 and 18 feet.

Forecasters warn of dangerous rip currents and sneaker waves.
