LOS ANGELES (AP) -- In Southern California, people can't be blamed for celebrating temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90's today. Not when some cities have seen highs closer to 110 degrees for much of the last week.

About 1,500 people were without power yesterday. The long-running heatwave has sent demand for electricity in the Los Angeles area to record breaking levels for a June weekend.

Nearly 400 wildfires sparked by lightning are burning in Northern California, where the weather has also been hot and dry. Firefighters worry about more blazes because of tinder-dry conditions following the driest spring on record.

Temperatures are expected to cool off dramatically tomorrow.
