Calabasas is HOT!
Stay Cool, Calabasas! It's Going To Be HOT!
The first heat wave of the summer is a scorcher and I'm sure you felt it today!
The first heat wave of the summer season will gain strength today, sending some valley temperatures into the 90s and 100s and triggering warnings of heat-related illnesses and an elevated danger of wildfires.
The hot and dry conditions are expected to last through Saturday, forecasters said. The high heat results in part from weak high pressure parked over Southern California.
Temperatures will be several degrees above normal, according to the the NWS. Burbank, for instance, is expected to reach a high of 94 Friday, compared to what would be the normal level, 78, said NWS meteorologist Rich Thompson. But there is nothing especially unusual about heat spikes in the Southland at this time of the year, he said.
State safety regulators today urged employers to protect their outdoor workers from heat illness this week.
'Employers need to be aware of the rules that protect workers from heat illness,' said Juliann Sum, chief of the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 'Water, rest, shade and increased vigilance are absolutely essential in high heat conditions.'
Cal-OSHA officials recommend that employers provide enough fresh water so that each employee can drink at least 1 quart, or four 8-ounce glasses of water per hour, and encourage them to do so. They are also advised to provide access to shade and encourage employees to take a cool-down rest in the shade for at least five minutes.
Cal/OSHA will inspect outdoor work sites in industries such as agriculture, construction, landscaping, and others throughout the heat season.
Employers can call (800) 963-9424 for assistance from Cal/OSHA Consultation Services.
Employees with work-related questions or complaints may contact DIR's Call Center in English or Spanish at 844-LABOR-DIR (844-522-6734).
By Friday, the humidity level will to between 6 and 12 percent in interior valleys and some mountain areas, and to the 15-25 percent range in coastal valleys, and possibly lower, depending on the marine layer, according to the NWS.
