LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A warm air mass expected to settle Friday in the Southland has caused problems for angels under house arrest in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic, mercury, which reached its lowest level in the 1990s, on weekends with potentially record temperatures.

The heat supply recommendation remains valid until 18.00 hours. The national weather service will report on Saturday.
CBS2 meteorologist Daniel Gersh described the heat as extreme and dangerous.
The temperature is about 20 degrees higher than normal for this time of year, Gersh said. The high rates currently in April are in the low 70% range.
Today, tomorrow will be your two hottest days of this heat wave, with more entries that day and maybe tomorrow, said Gersh. Yesterday we set records in places like Camarillo and Burbank.

Los Angeles County Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer advised people not to get in their cars and not to travel to other counties that might ease restrictions along the coast, noting that they could still be exposed to the coronavirus and take it home.
Some of Orange County’s beaches, such as Huntington Beach and Newport Beach, are still open, although most parking lots are closed – making parking difficult, if not impossible – and social requirements still apply. About 9,000 people were in Huntington Beach on Thursday, CBS2 rescuers said.
Seal Beach, Lagoon Beach, Wedge in Newport Beach and San Clemente Beach will be closed.

Even if the weather is good, it is very important that people don’t gather on the street, Mr. Ferrer said.
The mayor of Malibu, Karen Farrer, begged the guests not to come on Thursday.
Stay safe at home and enjoy the fresh air in your neighborhood or garden, Farrer told CBS2.
There were wind recommendations in several areas, and in moderate or gusty winds, trees could be cut down and power failures could occur. According to the NWS, the strongest winds will blow through the 5th Interstate Corridor in the San Gabriel Mountains, the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valley and along the coast.
Gusts of up to 75 miles per hour are possible in some areas.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Fire Department issued a warning to homeowners after observing an increase in home fires in recent weeks.
In the event of a fire, a well-prepared and maintained, unobstructed window can be the quickest and safest way out, said CFIA Police Chief Daryl L. Osby in a news report. In case of fire this is not the most effective way to escape by crawling outside with little smoke and trying to find the way out, as fires in residential areas often start in the living room or kitchen where these doors are located. It is time to talk to all family members and people who live at home about how they can protect themselves against home fires.
