With scorching temperatures on the horizon, Southern California residents are being advised to take precautions in response to the extreme heat warnings issued by the National Weather Service.

Wednesday is expected to bring the hottest day of the week, with afternoon temperatures soaring in the region. There will be excessive heat warnings in effect from 10 a.m. Wednesday until 8 p.m. Thursday for parts of the Antelope Valley. The temperatures in these areas could reach a scorching 106 degrees.

Victorville, Hesperia, and Apple Valley can expect similar conditions with excessive heat warnings in effect from Wednesday morning until Friday evening.

Given the current weather conditions, authorities are urging residents to take precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses. This includes staying hydrated, finding cool places to take shelter, avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and checking on vulnerable neighbours.

Poor air quality is expected in several parts of the Southland, especially in inland areas such as Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, and Redlands, in addition to the high temperatures. Extra precautions should be taken by individuals with respiratory conditions.

Thursday is anticipated to bring another day of hot weather, but there is some relief in sight as high pressure starts to weaken. This will pave the way for cooler temperatures over the weekend.
