Western states bake under extended heat wave
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Temperatures soared into triple digits across the western United States on Saturday as a continuing heat wave strained energy supplies and sent thousands to beaches, lakes and shopping malls in search of cooler climes.
A large and forceful high pressure system pushed the mercury to roughly 10 degrees above normal across the west, but relief is in sight — the system is drifting east. By Tuesday, temperatures should be back to normal, said David Sweet, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
