Southwest at highest heat risk level as heat wave this weekend threatens to break all-time temperature records


Another relentless heat wave is expected to grip the West this weekend. The extreme conditions in the forecast have prompted the National Weather Service (NWS) to categorize much of California and Nevada in the highest heat risk level by Sunday.
Over 30 million people are under heat alerts across the western states as temperatures are forecast to soar well into the triple digits this weekend, threatening to break daily high-temperature records.

Nearly the entire state of California will be impacted by this heat wave, in addition to the major metro areas in the Southwest.

"Numerous daily high temperature records could be in jeopardy of being broken, particularly for California and Nevada. Highs could approach 115-120 degrees for the lower elevations of Arizona and eastern California this weekend," the Weather Prediction Center (WPC) said on Friday.



Death Valley could even reach 130°F or higher on Sunday and Monday, coming close to the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth, which was 134°F at the same location in 1913.
Las Vegas has the potential to set a new high-temperature record Friday and again through the weekend. The current all-time high is 117°F, and the NWS is forecasting 116°F, 118°F, and 117°F as high temperatures today through Sunday. Sacramento, California, has the chance to break its all-time high temperature of 114°F this weekend.

A "Very High" heat risk level (4 out of 4) has been issued across a widespread area of the Southwest. The heat risk includes much of California and Nevada and portions of northwestern Arizona and southwestern Utah. Cities such as Sacramento, Bakersfield, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, and Phoenix.
"Heat Risk values on Saturday and Sunday are widespread 'Very High' ... 'Very High' means that the entire population is at a very high risk of heat-related illness due to both the long duration heat, and the lack of overnight relief," the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Las Vegas said on Friday.
