Uhhhh ... doesn't it depend on where you are in LA?
And my guess isn't on the list.

Are you talking about all of L.A. County? Woodland Hills or Chatworth in the San Fernando Valley tend to be the hot spots. In July 2006, we experienced miserably hot and humid weather. Woodland Hills had the record high temperature of 119 degrees; that record hasn't been broken yet. I remember running the window a/c unit 24/7 for about five days straight. It "cooled down" to 80 degrees at night.

Downtown L.A. reached a record high of 113 in September 2010. *gasp*

In July 2005 it was 125 in Oceanside. I got home and it was 120. The transformer in my front yard blew. No AC for 4 days, I went thru 125 pounds of ice cooling the house down. Little unusual heatwave but they occur.
I am betting we get a few surprises this year.

The hottest weather I have experienced in my life has been 110 degrees at westminister the same day of the record breaking temp in downtown LA.

Hottest I experienced in almost 22 years in L. A. was 111 on 6/26/90 (Civic Center high). IIRC, that was an all-time high for downtown L. A. at the time. Just so happened that RTD was giving free rides on the about-to-open Blue Line that day in the downtown area (Pico to Washington stations). It was a pleasure getting on those brand new LRVs with the AC blasting. That record stood until a few years ago, IINM.

Then on the way home from work that day, my bus broke down on the Harbor Freeway (may have overheated). That was a hot year, I remember Cinco de Mayo it was in the mid-90s, which is highly unusual for that early in the year, then June 26th, then on July 14th, the first official day of Blue Line service, it was in the upper 90s. I heard that several people waiting in the long rides had to be treated for heatstroke, I remember seeing a ambulance leaving while I was waiting at Pico Station.
