NELLIS AFB, NV - APRIL 25:  Hotel-casinos on the Las Vegas Strip are seen behind a United States Air Force E-3 AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System) as it taxis at Nellis Air Force Base while participating in the Joint Expeditionary Force Experiment 2006 (JEFX 06) April 25, 2006 in Las Vegas, Nevada. JEFX is a biannual test of new systems and technologies by every branch of the military in an attempt to speed their introduction into the modern battlefield. This year's tests involve about 1,400 personnel from the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia studying new technologies during mock combat over the Nevada desert and center on finding better ways to communicate critical information between armed forces.

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.
