Yep - this site appears to have the current data: http://www.laalmanac.com/weather/we04.php
Record high for July was 107 on July 1 1985. The all time record is 113 on Sept 27 2010.
Interesting chart, so it seems LA doesn't necessarily get real hot
, but the average temp is quite warm(doesn't get cold).
MSP can get hot but we rarely get the triple digits(maybe 3 to 4 times/decade??) and I believe 8-10 times/year for 90+ degree days, almost always in July or August. We do get quite cold though. Single digits and single digits below zero are not uncommon in Jan and Feb with maybe 3 to 4 days/year below -10F, -20F is quite rare in MSP(maybe 3 to 4/decade) but quite common(dozen/year??) 250 miles to the North near the Canadian border. This is good for me as in the single digits the Leafs range is reduced a fair amount and single digits below zero it's really reduced, teens below zero can easily cut the range in half and I don't think we've had a -20F day since getting the Leaf, although I bet the range would be lucky to get out of the 20s for miles, even with a full charge
Now Las Vegas and areas around it get hot, I believe they've had 120 degree days this year, now thats hot! of course it's a desert area, which LA is not.
