Slideshow: Heat grips the West

BOISE, Idaho - When the mercury hit 104, Rick Overton took his colleagues tubing on the Boise River, thinking it couldn't get much hotter. A day later, parts of the West were in for a little relief, but not everywhere — Boise was expected to hit 107 degrees Friday.
"Once it gets that high — 105, 107, 109 — it just feels hot," said Overton, a copywriter for the digital marketing firm Wirestone.
Warnings of excessive heat were still posted Friday morning for much of Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Oregon and Washington state. The Southwest was expected to cool off slightly, though, said weather service meteorologist Jamie Meier.
