The heat wave continues across Southern California, pushing temperatures to record-breaking highs, stressing the electrical grid, and aggravating wildfires being fought around the region.  Temperatures will be a bit more moderate tomorrow (Friday), but triple-digit temps will likely hang around the Inland Empire through the weekend.  More information in this report from NPR's Danielle Karson and KVCR's Ken Vincent.
