Main Street, Quartzsite • 928-927-6310 "Positive anything is better than negative nothing." ~ Elbert Hubbard An Excessive Heat Watch has been issued for most of the state for Friday morning through Monday night. A dry low pressure system will move through the area, keep- ing our temperatures just below normal and push any remaining moisture out of Arizona. This week, through Thursday, there will very little change day to day in the weather pattern. The warm up will be gradual those days but by Friday, the heat is on. High pressure building to our southeast will take hold and send out temperatures well above 110 degrees. The heat wave begins Friday and goes through next Monday. Temperatures records will be challenged and their is a possibility that some areas could hit 120 degrees on Sunday, June 19, just in time for busy Fathers' Day weekend. Temperature highs 113-121 degrees with peak heat on Sunday. Impacts heat related illness will be likely for those doing strenuous activity outdoors, or those with health conditions that do not have adequate access to air condition- ing. If untreated, some illness events could be fatal. Nature's Nuggets BUYS & SELLS GOLD Nuggets - Jewelry- Coins- Sivler Call Richard T 928-927-5479 Quartzsite YEAR ROUND!
