Southern California has already endured scorching temperatures, and yet a deja vu hung in the air as parts of the Southland saw health alerts again this weekend as they baked in another intense heat wave.
Temperatures were expected to soar to triple digits again starting Saturday in the interior valleys and desert areas. Forecasters warned that the extreme heat will increase the risks for heat-related illnesses.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has an excessive heat warning in place until 8 p.m. Monday.
