Clouds: Storms Over Hollywood Topic: Light and Shadow Clouds: Storms Over Hollywood Two on the afternoon on Wednesday, June 28, above Hollywood, on a brutally hot day - the whole basin baking in the harsh sun - eighty at the beaches, in the mid-nineties from downtown to Hollywood to Beverly Hills, and on the other side of the hills, in the San Fernando Valley, well over one hundred. On Mulholland Drive, at the turnout above the Hollywood Bowl, even at six hundred seventy feet above sea level, it really is ninety-three in what little shade there is. But off to the east above the San Bernardino Mountains - Baldy and Big Bear (Mount San Gregornio) - the thunderheads are building - storms coming up from the Baja that will never get here.
To the northeast, they frame the Hollywood sign, and directly west, they make a nice backdrop for the Griffith Park Observatory.
