A nearly 100-year-old heat record could be broken in Carson City on Sunday.
The National Weather Service predicts a high temperature of 98, which would tie the record set in 1929.
Sunday’s temperatures will start a week of nearly 100-degree heat for western Nevada heading into the Fourth of July holiday.
Forecasters say a ridge of high pressure will build across most of the West through mid-week, with record afternoon heat possible.
Thunderstorms may be back late next week as the ridge shifts east, allowing moisture from the southwest.
With the heat, officials are urging residents to check on the elderly, sick and those without air conditioning.
The heat comes as Roper’s Heating and Air Conditioning is seeking to collect new, in-the-box fans for Carson City seniors during the annual KOLOCares Fan Drive.
Dirk Roper, owner of Roper’s, said this is his company’s third year collecting fans for the Carson City Senior Center.
Fans can be dropped by the Roper’s office, 2062 S. Edmonds Drive in Carson City, or picked up by a Roper’s service technician during a service call. Fans may also be dropped off at the Carson City Senior Center between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at 911 Beverly Drive.
Donated fans must be new and in the original box.
People aged 60 or older are eligible to receive a fan, with priority given to seniors without air conditioning and those who have not previously participated in the program. For information, visit
Officials are also reminding everyone to not leave children and pets unattended in cars. Limit activities to early morning and late in the evening. Signs of heat stroke in pets include heavy panting, rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, dizziness, lack of coordination, deep red or purple tongue, seizure, and unconsciousness.
Carson City received more than a tenth-of-an inch of rain on Thursday, the first measurable rainfall in a month. Genoa recorded .26 inches on Thursday.
