People enjoy Centennial Park recently – on a day that wasn’t as hot as what it will be over the weekend. While hot temperatures come to Arizona every summer, officials are urging people to be extra-cautious this weekend, when daytime highs will exceed 110 degrees.JC AMBERLYN/Miner

Heat wave coming just in time for weekend

Dig out the kiddy pool and crank up the air conditioning - it's going to get hot this weekend. The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for portions of Southern Nevada, southeastern California and northwestern Arizona. The service is predicting that temperatures in Kingman will climb well past the 100-degree mark before the week ends. Today's high is expected to be above 100 degrees, and temperatures will stay in that general vicinity for the next few days.
