LAS VEGAS (AP) - A strong high-pressure system settling over the region Friday and through the weekend will bring extreme temperatures to the already blazing Southwest.

Forecasters say Las Vegas could see a high of 118 over the weekend.

Notoriously hot Death Valley in California is forecast to reach 129 degrees, not far off the world-record high of 134 logged there exactly one century ago.

In Las Vegas, two Elvis impersonators and a performer costumed as the iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign said they still planned to keep up their routine of working the tourist corridor in the broad daylight and turning in for the evenings, heat notwithstanding.

Elvis impersonator Cristian Morales said he rather "fight with the sun than fight with drunk people."
