The heat wave is peaking, so here's how to keep cool
The heat wave that's been scorching Southern California over the past few days is expected to reach its peak Tuesday.
A heat advisory will be in effect until 9 p.m. Wednesday across Los Angeles County, including the beach cities and valley areas. In response, many cooling centers across the L.A. area will have extended hours Tuesday and Wednesday.
It'll be relatively calm at L.A. County beaches, but parts of the Orange County coastline will experience high surf for the next 48 hours – which could create dangerous conditions in the water.
