As of 1 p.m., Thermal Airport record a temperature of 105, exceeding the previous record by a degree (104 set in 1965) and Palm Springs is just two degrees away from tying the 106 degree record. High pressure reigns over the West and will keep us in the triple digits through tomorrow.
In this heat, remember to take your usual "Desert Summer" heat precautions:
And don't forget about Fido and his friends, always check pavement temps before walking your pets. Don't burn those paws!
Gusty winds arrive late tomorrow into Sunday, which will have the benefit of cooling things down a bit.
Highs today will be close to record levels (records: PSP 106, TRM 104).
Into Sunday, the winds push highs into the lower 90s, but the triple digits return late next week.
