Temperatures start to cool off

Window washers and others who work outside during the heat of the day caught a bit of a break Wednesday as high temperatures eased out of the triple-digit range — if only briefly — and a breeze helped cool parts of the Santa Clarita Valley.

Wednesday’s highs were recorded at 98 degrees in the Newhall Pass and 99 degrees in Saugus, the National Weather Service reported, interrupting a nine-day heat wave that threatened to break local records for consecutive triple-digit-temperature days.

An increasing onshore flow of air cooled Southern California coastal areas and pushed inland Wednesday, easing the heat wave area wide.

Still, forecasters say Santa Clarita Valley temperatures won’t be what anyone is likely to call chilly for the rest of the week.

Highs will be in the low 100s to high 90s today through Sunday, with lows in the high 60s and a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms tonight.

Temperatures are expected to hit highs of 97 degrees next week.
