The day started off warm, with temperatures in the 80s before dawn, according to the National Weather Service.

Before noon Tuesday, downtown had already tied the record for Oct. 24 of 99 degrees. That record was set in 1909.

The 1965 record at Los Angeles International Airport was broken before noon, when temperatures reached 98 degrees.

The mercury kept climbing throughout the day: downtown reached 104 degrees, as did LAX. Records also fell at Long Beach Airport, Burbank Airport, UCLA, Camarillo Airport and in Oxnard.

The Santa Barbara and Santa Maria airports also experienced record-breaking temperatures.

Those headed to Game 1 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium are advised to bring plenty of water. The game starts at 5:09 p.m.; sunset is about an hour after that.

An excessive heat warning – as well as a red flag warning due to gusty Santa Ana winds and dry, fire-prone conditions – are in effect for most of Southern California.

The heat warning extends till 8 p.m. Tuesday. The red flag warning goes till 6 p.m. Wednesday in L.A. and Ventura counties and until 2 p.m. for Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

It should be slightly cooler Wednesday, the weather service said.
