Record Heat Over The Weekend
It’s only March, did you turn your air on yet? If you did, no one would blame you. It was a record breaking weekend for heat, all across the southwest. On Saturday, Las Vegas reached it’s first 90 degree day of the year, breaking the previous high of 88 for March 18, set back in 1972. Sunday’s high of 89 also broke a record. And, we weren’t alone. In Phoenix, it hit 95 degrees, Yuma reached a high of 96 degrees and Kingman saw 83 degrees, both tying their 110-year-old records set last century in 1907. And, California’s Death Valley had a high of 99 degrees, breaking its record which was set 70 years ago in 1947.
