The second day of a dangerous heat wave brought record-high temperatures across Southern California.

Saturday was slightly cooler than Friday, but many areas topped out well above the century mark. Among the communities setting records for the day: Downtown L.A. (104 degrees), Burbank (105), Van Nuys (110), Woodland Hills (113), Santa Ana (103), Riverside (113), Escondido (109) and Ramona (108).


Unlike Friday, there were no communities that set all-time temperature records Saturday. Among the places that hit that milestone Friday were Van Nuys Airport (117 degrees), Burbank Airport (114), UCLA (111) and Santa Ana (114).
