According to the National Weather Service, the streak that began on April 21 shattered the 190-day record that had stood for 135 years after being set in 1885.
"This record will go well beyond 191 straight days, as the forecast highs for the next seven days for downtown Los Angeles are over 70 degrees," the Weather Service said in a statement on Wednesday. "In fact, there is a chance high temperature may remain at or above 70 degrees for the next ten days or more, possibly pushing the streak past 200 straight days."

Meanwhile, a high temperature of 76 degrees was logged Wednesday at Camarillo Airport, where a streak of 191 straight days of high temperatures with a high of 70 degrees or more was ongoing, the Weather Service said.
The previous record at that site, 175 consecutive days, was recorded from May 26, 2018, through Nov. 16, 2018.
"This record will likely continue to be increased for at least seven more days," the Weather Service said Wednesday, adding that records for the Camarillo area date back to 1923.
Today was the 191st consecutive day that Downtown Los Angeles had a high temp of 70 or higher. This is officially the longest such streak in recorded history for DTLA, the previous being 190 days in 1885. The streak is expected to continue... #CAwxhttps://t.co/0HzWPHLZBx pic.twitter.com/9J0EGzaRnW— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) October 29, 2020
