After a week of scorching temperatures in the Santa Clarita Valley, today is supposed to be one of the hottest days of the week, according to forecasts by the National Weather Service.

Temperatures were forecast to be 108 degrees today, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures reached 93 degrees in the Newhall Pass by 9 a.m. today.

On Friday, temperatures reached a blazing 109 degrees, the hottest temperature recorded in nearly 30 years.
Southern California Edison issued a flex alert starting at 9 a.m. today, urging residents to conserve electricity. The alert was issued because of increased demand for electricity due to the heat wave.

Residents are asked to turn their thermostats to 78 degrees or warmer, use appliances during early morning or evening hours, use electric fans if possible, and turn off any unnecessary lights or appliances. The flex alert will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday.
