Summerlike temperatures on way Thursday Friday could set records

by ,

first_imgThis week’s weather will offer Clark County residents a summertime treat.While the temperature highs will hover around 80 degrees through Wednesday, the final two workdays might include highs near 90 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Thursday’s and Friday’s temperatures could set records, with Friday likely to be the hottest day, said Colby Neuman, a meteorologist with the weather service. The highest temperatures will be around 5 p.m.A high pressure system that was over the Gulf of Alaska on Sunday afternoon will strengthen and make its way toward Oregon and Washington later this week, Neuman said. The pressure system, combined with warm easterly winds, are likely to cause the balmier weather.“That’s kind of the pattern for us when we see warmer temperatures throughout the year, especially in the summer months,” Neuman said.The weather is expected to gradually cool Saturday and Sunday, but it will still be relatively warm, Neuman said. The weather service typically forecasts seven days in advance, so it’s not exactly clear when the warm air will be gone.“Sometimes it happens within 24 hours. Sometimes it takes two, three, four days,” Neuman said. “On average in this scenario, we don’t stay there for that long. So we should cool off, but it’s not a guarantee either.”Neuman added that while the weather is hot, rivers are relatively deep, cold and moving fast. With temperatures around 50 degrees in local rivers, those jumping in can expect hypothermia within minutes, and life jackets should be worn, Neuman said.last_img read more

Losing Calais Campbell in free agency was a huge

first_img Losing Calais Campbell in free agency was a huge, if not expected offseason development for the Arizona Cardinals. The mammoth 6-foot-8 defensive lineman was a stalwart on the Arizona line for nine seasons and had one of his best years in 2016, racking up eight sacks to go along with an interception, three fumble recoveries and his first professional touchdown.He signed a big-money deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars in March, one that will pay him $60 million over four years with half of that figure guaranteed.

Nkemdiche only played 89 snaps in his rookie season, while Gunter had 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks while playing in a rotation for defensive coordinator James Bettcher.The Cardinals didn’t draft a defensive lineman this offseason, nor did they sign one in free agency — a sign that they’re confident in their depth at the position. Corey Peters, Ed Stinson, Xavier Williams, Josh Mauro, Frostee Rucker and Olsen Pierre will all see playing time in 2017 as returning players.Davis ranked the Los Angeles Chargers’ line as the best in the league, while only the Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts came in lower than the Cardinals.
