A scorching heat wave set record temperatures in cities across the West on Saturday as the mercury climbed well into the triple digits in communities across Southern California and Arizona.

In Death Valley, California, an unofficial thermometer recorded a reading of 130 degrees - just short of the 134-degree reading from a century ago that stands as the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth.

Official readings from Saturday placed the temperature at a balmy 125 degrees.

The California Inland Empire cities of Palm Springs, Indio and Riverside set heat records for the day at 122, 121 and 105, respectively.

In Phoenix, the mercury soared to 119 degrees - the fourth-highest temperature every recorded for the Arizona city. Las Vegas hit 115 - two degrees short of its all-time record. 

At Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, U.S. Airways canceled 18 flights because the companys smaller planes could not handle the extreme heat. The larger Boeing and Airbus jetliners were not effected.

 

 

 

National Weather Service meteorologists in Phoenix baked cooking in their government-issued van - which reached temperatures of an estimated 200 degrees Saturday.

The cookies took four hours to cook and reportedly tasted just like they came out of the oven.

The heat was so punishing that rangers took up positions at trailheads at Lake Mead in Nevada to persuade people not to hike. Zookeepers in Phoenix hosed down the elephants and fed tigers frozen fish snacks.

The National Weather Service said Phoenix reached 116 on Friday, two degrees short of the expected high, in part because of a light layer of smoke from wildfires in neighboring New Mexico that shielded the blazing sun.

Las Vegas was expecting near record highs over the weekend approaching 116 degrees, while Phoenix was forecast to hit nearly 120.

Temperatures are also expected to soar across Utah and into Wyoming and Idaho, with triple-digit heat forecast for the Boise area. Cities in Washington state should break the 90s next week.

This is the hottest time of the year, but the temperatures that well be looking at for Friday through Sunday, theyll be toward the top,’ said National Weather Service meteorologist Mark OMalley. Its going to be baking hot across much of the entire West.

The heat is the result of a high-pressure system brought on by a shift in the jet stream, the high-altitude air current that dictates weather patterns. The jet stream has been more erratic in the past few years.

In Las Vegas, some 200 people attending an outdoor concert at Silverton Casino learned the hard way the dangers of extreme heat when they had to be treated for weather-related nausea, vomiting and fatigue.

As many as 30 of the unfortunate concertgoers were taken to area hospitals for further treatment, according to the local fire department.

Meanwhile, in Arizona at least seven people have been found dead over the past week after falling victim to the brutal heat.

Death Valley, which is listed as a national park, is dotted with locations such as Furnace Creek and Dantes View, and officials are urging people to exercise extreme caution during the heat wave.

But sweltering heat is often a big draw for visitors - especially tourists from Germany and France - with hotels already booked solid during the hotter months of July and August.

Urban areas aren escaping the heat wave either, as the National Weather Service report predict that it will hit 118 in Phoenix and 117 in Las Vegas on Sunday - a mark reached only twice in Sin City.

 

 
 

The easiest way to beat the heat in cities like Phoenix is to flee the desert for higher-elevation mountain cities such as Flagstaff, Sedona and Prescott which typically are much cooler.

But there won be much of a break from a heat during this hot spell.

Flagstaff could approach the record Saturday of 97 degrees, and Sedona could be in the 110 range.

As if temperatures nearing 120 degrees weren bad enough, its even hotter yet inside cars and on concrete and asphalt roads and sidewalks.

It can get to 200 degrees on asphalt during peak summer temperatures, presenting all sorts of hazards.

Drivers should keep pets and children out of locked cars, and a person who suffers a fall on a sidewalk or a street could end up in the burn unit.

Air travellers have to deal with other problems, as bigger jetliners can handle temperatures around 126 and 127 degrees, but smaller planes may have flights delayed.

If the temperature tops 118, the air becomes less dense and changes liftoff conditions.

Since the start of the extreme temperatures, officials have expressed concern about immigrants who cross the desert border between Mexico and Arizona, because many succumb to exhaustion and dehydration in more mild temperatures.

At least seven bodies of immigrants have been found in the last week in Arizona, and agents in the Tucson sector rescued more than 170 people from the desert during a 30-day stretch in May and June when temperatures were even lower than expected in the coming days
