And now, with a look at the extended forecast for 2041 to 2060, is UCLA with a report that may have some Southland residents sweating...
UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability released a study Thursday that takes a look at Southern California climate trends, and sees a mid-century future that could tap the thermometer up 4 to 5 degrees across the region.
The study, "Mid-Century Warming in the Los Angeles Region," shows impact on the Southland's varied landscapes with predictions down to the neighborhood level. In downtown L.A., where a record high was set in 2010 at 113 degrees, the number days to top 95 degrees could triple, for example.
