Just adds to all the problems the once-Golden State now faces. Democrats deserve the place now. They ruined it.

This story is about rising temperatures in California and has absolutely nothing to do with US partisan politics. Also, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California is a Republican, not a Democrat. Please try to keep your comments on topic, and factually correct.

As someone who spent some time in LA, I can tell you that that temperature is absolutely insane for that area.....

If it was out in the desert, I would not surprised, but Downtown Los Angeles??

That is insane, but at least it's a dry heat. That means it would be quite a bit cooler in the shade.

Sounds more like Palm Springs! Next, the Santa Ana winds...

As a former 35 year resident of southern California, I can tell you that this is the typical time of year for it to get hot like this. The temps in downtown actually were probably higher but according to other reports I read, the thermometer at the National Weather Service Los Angeles reporting station actually BROKE when the temperature reached 113F/45C !!! The reason it gets hotter in the LA basin as opposed to the desert is that the winds bring in the heat from the desert and the friction causes the heat to rise more and more the closer you get to the coast. However, once at the coast, it gets a LITTLE bit cooler there.

I'm in LA, and there's no humidity so it's doesn't feel as bad (to me) as a muggy day at 27 degrees (80F). I grew up east of Los Angeles in a hotter climate so I'm used to these kind of heat waves. It was definitely water cooler talk, but nothing crippling. :-)

Southern Indiana and Northern Kentucky have also been baking. It was 100 degrees last Tuesday and we're in a severe drought. I'm expecting a lot of winter storms this year as well for this area.

Last summer in central tx we had over 100 days stright with temperatures at 110 degrees or higher, not to mention conditions that could make it feel even hotter than that.. oui!

@EbiChiri: It is a little hotter than normal but it always gets very hot at the end of September/beginning of October. I just hope they don't have their usual fires caused by the Santa Ana winds. And CrysTyra is right, LA gets very little humidity in LA and often a 27C temp in Tokyo feels much hotter than any day in LA. But I expect that yesterday was an exception!
