Weather Forecast

It’s the time of the year when some nincompoop will say, “But it’s a dry heat!” We can expect highs in the triple digits through this weekend, while there will be a cooling trend (?) in the low to mid 90s in the middle of the week. However, it will be back up into triple digits come next weekend.

The evenings aren’t looking too bad, with overnight lows in the 70s and 60s. You know it’s really summer when it doesn’t cool off in the evenings.

Stay hydrated, everyone. Stay inside in air conditioning if possible, and limit your outdoor activities to the early morning hours.

It’s hoped the hot weather will kill or at least slow down the coronavirus. While this virus is new, this has often happened with viruses that cause the flu. Greg Bachman of the La Paz County Health Department said this if the first time he’s actually looked forward to a summer in Parker and La Paz County.

My apologies for missing last week’s forecast. My computer took a dump, and I couldn’t get a new one until this week. I typed up my other stories at the News Herald office in Lake Havasu City.
