A third day of record-breaking heat hit Southern California on Friday, giving residents another taste of summer.

  • Anaheim – 106 degrees; record was 96 in 2014
  • Santa Ana – 103; the maximum was 94 in 2014
  • San Jacinto – 96; tied with 1989 record

Forecasters expect the heat to abate everywhere except for the lower deserts, parts of the Los Angeles Valley and the Coachella Valley on Saturday, when land flow and an uneven sea layer move in to cool things down in the evening.

A few light rains may pass through Riverside County, but no more than a few hundredths of an inch are expected in parts of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties.
