(SALEM) - Salem hit 101 degrees Monday, just missing the record high of 102 degrees set back in 1928.

If you were one of the unfortunate ones searching for an air conditioner to beat the heat Monday, and over the weekend, the news wasn’t good.

Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Bi-Mart, Fred Meyer and more reported that air conditioners flew off store shelves Friday, and most were totally out of air conditioners and fans by Sunday.

Ice cream shops such as Baskin Robbins and Cold Stone Creamery reported near record sales this weekend.

Other popular items this weekend that stores were having a hard time keeping on the shelves were bottled water, sun screen, beer, ice, pop, juice, pools, and of course ice cream.

Salem Air Fair and Festival organizers say attendance was down about 10 percent during the three-day event this year because of the heat.

The National Weather Service says a cooling trend is in store for the Salem-area throughout the rest of the week.

Here is the Salem-area forecast through Friday:

Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Highs 85 to 90. Light wind becoming northwest 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon.

Tuesday night: Clear in the evening...then partly cloudy. Lows around 55. North wind 5 to 10 mph.
