  • ...Hot weather across the region this weekend... After several weeks of cool and below normal temperatures...triple digits will return to the lower deserts today and will linger through the weekend. Afternoon highs above 100 degrees will be common with many locations peaking between 105-108 degrees yielding the hottest weather of the year so far. While not terribly unusual for this time of year...heat is a serious health threat and even seasoned year long residents may be affected. Temperatures that will occur this weekend are historically known to cause serious heat related injuries if the proper precautions are not taken. Some things to consider before making plans this weekend: 1) try and limit outdoor activities to the early morning or evening hours and drink plenty of water when working or playing outside. 2) check the backseat. Never leave children or pets inside a car for any amount of time. 3) if you have not run your home air conditioner yet this year...test it now before the heat sets in. 4) check on neighbors who may be reluctant to use air conditioning early in the Summer season. Stay up-to-date on the latest forecasts for this weekend.
