With the heat wave warning, people are starting to visit Santa Monica Beach to cool off on the 16th.

Southern California’s ‘June Gloom’ will end this weekend, but there will be a heat wave starting this weekend.

National Weather Service (NWS) predicts that as a result of high atmospheric pressure and weakening of sea breeze, the mercury started to rise today (17th) and the heat will continue until next Monday, the 20th.

On the 20th, especially, the temperatures in most areas will be above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, including 102 degrees in Downtown LA and above 110 degrees in the Valley. NWS also mentioned that Downtown LA’s temperature will reach a record in the history of DTLA’s June temperature for 43 years.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg expressed this upcoming heat wave in Southern California as ‘Heatzilla’, which is a combination of heat and Godzilla. It is expected that the heat will begin to fade starting on the 21st.
