More heat for the West
Although afternoon and evening thunderstorms will dot much of the West again Monday, high temperatures will still be the lead story. Overall, however, the extreme heat of the last few days will tend to ameliorate a bit. Still, a few more records are likely to tumble. High temperatures are forecast to range from the 60s in parts of Yellowstone N. P. and along the north Pacific coast to over 110 in the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts. Triple-digit heat will sear eastern Washington and the Central Valley of California. Readings in the 80s and 90s will be widespread.
