Hot in Needles
Saturday will see 114 degrees in Needles, CA with 0% chance of rain. Needles has two claims to fame: Snoopy's brother Spike lives there and the legendary Rt 66 runs through town. Needles was the first stop in California for those travelers headed west on the Mother Road. The hottest natural air temps that I have personally experienced occurred when I passed through the dusty town several summers ago - 118 degrees. Oh it gets hotter in Death Valley, but I've only visited Death Valley in the "off season," missing out on 129 degrees.
