Well, in case you haven’t noticed, it’s been pretty darn hot here in Los Angeles the past few days with temperatures reaching over 100 degrees in downtown LA. Before it starts to cool off this weekend, I thought I’d hit you up with a hot weather question.

In downtown Los Angeles, weather records began on July 1, 1877. The highest temperature recorded in downtown Los Angeles was 113 °F (45 °C) on September 27, 2010.
