    Now this is HOT STUFF!!!


    Major Heat Wave Building in the West US


    By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist

    An atmospheric blast furnace will be at full throttle heading into the weekend over the interior West with heat reaching dangerous levels, challenging records and elevating the wildfire threat.

    While many folks over the interior West are accustomed to and expect hot weather during the summer, the developing pattern will take the heat to the extreme. In some cities, record highs for any date throughout the year could be equaled or breached.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    We hit 113 yesterday. Today will be worse.

    Death Valley, CA might hit 130.

    This is predicted to be the warmest weekend on record in Nevada for us.

    It's all Bush's fault.

    Saw this on FB...seems appropriate:
