Record-breaking 113 degrees in downtown L.A.

Today is the hottest day ever recorded in downtown L.A. At 12:15 p.m., the weather station at USC hit the 113-degree mark, breaking the old all-time high of 112, set on June 26, 1990.

It makes today the hottest day since records in downtown L.A. started being kept in 1877, said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service.

  1. I agree it was a hot one. My air conditioner with the help of fans did pretty well even when I used the oven broiler to do the salmon for Rdb's special birthday dinner. Sorry you couldn't all be here.
