Kevin Martin of Corona, who runs web sites including The Weather Space and Southern California Weather Authority, said Friday he plans to drive to Furnace Creek and Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park on Sunday June 30.
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for the San Gorgonio Pass and most of Southern California from 10 a.m. Saturday to 8 p.m. Sunday.
Death Valley is billed by the National Park Service as the hottest, driest, lowest spot in North America, and it is now officially known as the hottest place on Earth.
In Fall 2012, a team of scientists known as the World Meteorological Organization, the climate agency for the United Nations, tossed out a temperature reading of 136.4 degrees claimed by the city of Al Aziziyah, Libya, on Sept. 13, 1922.
A 134-degree reading recorded at Greenland Ranch in Death Valley on July 10, 1913, is now the official world record, the New York Times reported in December.
Park and weather officials are planning a World Record Heat 100th Anniversary event on Wednesday July 10, 2013.
The forecast for Death Valley on Saturday June 29 is "Sunny. Highs 104 to 107 in the mountains . . . around 130 at Furnace Creek."
The extended forecast, which includes Sunday June 30 is "Sunny. Highs 106 to 109 in the mountains . . . around 130 at Furnace Creek."
