“It looks like today is going to be the hottest day. It’s going to be really hot,” said NWS weather specialist Stuart Seto.

Temperatures in Woodland Hills are expected to top out at about 105  degrees, which, while plenty hot, is still a few notches away from the record temperature for this day in 1981 when it was 111 degrees.

Downtown Los Angeles will cook in 94 degree heat and won’t get much respite on Friday, Seto said, with temperatures forecast to hover around 92 degrees.
