...Record Heat and Potential for Thunderstorms Late Week...

Unusually strong high pressure near the Four Corners area will
shift westward into Nevada and California by the middle of the
week. Temperatures will warm to record levels and the threat of
thunderstorms will return.

* Heat: Temperatures will warm gradually through Tuesday, but
  nothing too dramatic. The real heat starts Wednesday with high
  confidence of that heat lasting into the Father`s Day weekend.
  Highs well into the 90s to lower 100s are projected in valleys
  and well into the 80s to lower 90s for mountain communities.
  This could break some record highs, especially Thursday and
  Friday. Lows will be above normal as well, but should be just
  cool enough to allow for some relief.

* Heat health impacts are likely mid and late week especially for
  people outdoors for prolonged periods. Plan on outdoor
  activities early in the day or later in the evening to minimize
  exposure, and of course have a good hydration strategy.

* Thunderstorms: The storm threat for Mineral and Churchill
  counties late Sunday has diminished with only a 1 in 15 chance
  that buildups will develop into a storm. The better chance of
  afternoon thunderstorms arrives Thursday and Friday, with a 2-3
  in 10 chance of seeing storms each day.

* Potential storm impacts include lightning, rapid temperature
  drops, brief heavy rain and hail, and strong outflow winds. New
  fire starts are also possible given the dryness for much of our
