Dangerously hot temperatures will grip the southwestern U.S. and California this weekend into next week, potentially taking out the previous record-high in Phoenix, where temperatures could top 115 degrees.

“There is absolutely no doubt we will be near all-time highs with this heat wave, with the hottest and most dangerous temperatures expected Monday through Wednesday,” the National Weather Service in Phoenix said, offering heat safety tips.

Forecasted high temperatures Sunday through Tuesday from the National Weather Service.

Daily record highs will be within reach: 115 degrees for Sunday, 118 degrees for Monday and 116 degrees for Tuesday. In fact, Phoenix could approach its all-time record high of 122 degrees set on June 26, 1990.
