Despite a gloomy June, officials warned of dangerous fire conditions in the hillsides created by Southern California’s fourth consecutive drought year. Scarce rain in recent years has left hillside vegetation tinder dry, prompting fire officials throughout Glendale and the foothills to renew calls for clearing brush from around homes. “Residents need to get rid of weeds [around their homes] and any flammable ornamental vegetation that is up against their home,” said Los Angeles County Fire Capt.

More than 150 residents braved the heat Saturday on Chandler Bikeway during the first CareWalk of Burbank, a 5K fundraiser for the Family Service Agency. “It was pretty good for our first run,” said Christie Blake, a therapist in the agency. “It was warm, but I’m glad I was underneath the awning.” Temperatures on Saturday reached 98 degrees, according to the National Weather Service, but participants were helped by a multitude of booths as vendors gave away energy drinks, handed out water and enticed walkers with pastries, courtesy of Porto’s Bakery.

BURBANK — Temperatures hit a record low Sunday morning at 26 degrees, freezing freshly sprinkled lawns and pipes in the process. Sunday's freeze beat out a 30-degree low set in 1963, according to the National Weather Service, and led to an influx of 911 calls to the Burbank Police Department with reports of busted and frozen pipes, police said. "Apparently a lot of people called in, according to one dispatcher, about broken pipes," Burbank Police Lt. Brian Matthews said.

BURBANK — The first winter storm of the season drenched Southern California on Monday, dropping as much as four inches of rain in the foothills and less than half that in the valley, snarling traffic on highways and roads. But aside from traffic delays, safety officials reported no major incidents along Glendale or Burbank streets or the freeways that cut through the region. By midday, the National Weather Service lifted a flash-flood warning for fire-ravaged areas in Los Angeles and Ventura counties as the rain stopped briefly, but the storm resumed later in the day. Authorities across Burbank and Glendale said the storm did not adversely affect the area.

Robert Blechl BURBANK -- You wouldn't know it from Tuesday morning's gloom, but the first heat wave of the year made its mark by melting a record last weekend. Sunday's peak temperature reached 94, frying the old record for the day of 92 set in 1967. But the high pressure began to break Monday. Although humid, Monday's high was 81, paling in comparison to another record of 92 set in 1967. Today through Friday should be milder as well, said meteorologist Bruce Rockwell of the National Weather Service, but the mercury may rise again by the weekend.

Glenn Boggs The article in the Feb. 23 edition of the Burbank Leader on the recent storms refers to lightning that struck a tree in the DeBell Golf Course as being "part of an intense storm that has brought more than an inch of rain to the city since Thursday," and later mentions rainfall at Bob Hope Airport totaling 1.24 inches in the 48-hour period starting Sunday afternoon. The amount of rain that actually fell on Burbank during the storm was several times greater than one would gather from the article.
