eyesmax, if you call it "Woodland", no one will know what you're talking about. Please call it by the full name of "Woodland Hills"!

Burbank can get hot, yes, but the entire San Fernando Valley is hot in the summer. However, "hot" is relative. The L.A. coastal plain gets the benefit of ocean breezes (unless there's a Santa Ana wind condition which means that the flow reverses; the air heats up when flowing over the mountains, and we all bake!) so it's usually 10-15 degrees cooler, especially on the west side. But because this is a coastal valley, we do get the marine influence, especially in May and June.

145!!! You should be just fine here then!

I'm currently in ATL. We have had record heat (index in the triple index) for the past 16 days. The humidity has been horrible. It's a wall that hits you once you open the door.

Yeah, it is important to be specific because there is a Woodland California near Sacramento. May the OP means Woodland instead of Woodland Hills.

I think he is exaggerating a bit about 145F degrees! No place on earth has recorded temperatures that hot. The hottest temperature ever was 136F in Libya. Death Valley is the second hottest at 134F. Can you image a day that gets above 130F? That would be sheer insanity and maybe death if you get caught outside. Once I got locked out of the house on a day that was 110F in Pasadena and thought I would die!

Yeah, 124F is horrible, no doubt about it. Thankfully you will likely never experience such heat in the LA area although it has come fairly close to 124F in Woodland Hills [119F] but that is extremely rare.
