ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 16, 2016) — Summer’s coming early in Anaheim.
Temperatures this weekend are expected to reach more than 100 degrees, a swing of 25 degrees or more from the mild days we’ve been seeing.
The heat wave will usher in summer, which officially begins on Monday. Expect the heat to continue well into next week.
