LOS ANGELES (AP) — Forecasters say there's no relief in sight and Southern California's heat wave is expected to continue through this week, with temperatures peaking Thursday and Friday.

The National Weather Service says Woodland Hills topped its 1982 record of 106 on Wednesday, when the mercury reached 107.

On Monday, the San Fernando Valley hotspot tied its record temperature of 108 degrees that was set in 1997.

Southern California Edison is ramping up the number of crews available to respond to possible power outages as sweltering temperatures send electricity use climbing.

The company is urging conservation and saying that high electricity use — particularly from air conditioners — is straining distribution equipment, but no power outages have been reported.
