As officials continue to urge residents to stay home, temperatures are expected to reach the upper and mid-80’s in Long Beach this weekend in the first heat wave of the year.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties until 6 p.m.
“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors,” the NWS reminded residents. “Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.”
While it’s expected to stay cloudy most of the mornings, the NWS forecasts that Saturday will reach a sunny high of 87 degrees and Sunday will reach 84 degrees.
Mayor Robert Garcia reminded residents on Friday that while other counties may be under different orders, Long Beach and LA County are still under a stay-home order.
