The spurts of thunderstorms and rain showers across Southern California during Labor Day weekend could continue today, with hot weather lingering on until Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
The hot, humid weather can be contributed to an upper level, low-pressure system off the Southern California coast, bringing subtropical moisture into the region, according to the weather service.
The moisture and heat will bring a small chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon in portions of Los Angeles County. Residents should expect to see triple digit-weather in the valleys and foothills. Temperatures in Glendora will hit the upper 90s today, with triple digits expected Wednesday and Thursday.
The beaches will see cooler temperatures today, peaking in the mid 80s in the afternoon.
The weather service urges residents never to leave children, elderly or pets in enclosed cars even for a brief moment, as temperatures can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.
