Southwest U.S. Braces for Early Heat Waves

The Southwest U.S. first major Heat waves of the season, each expected to surpass temperatures of 110 degrees Fahrenheit in Las Vegas and Phoenix, are bracing the cities. Residents should prepare for the coming days’ “dangerously hot conditions,” according to the forecasters.

Heatwaves Trigger Records

The National Weather Service is warning, that southeast California through central Arizona will see its hottest weather since last September. Daily record highs are threat to across the area. Excessive heat warnings will last from 10 a.m. Wednesday until 8 p.m. Parts of southern Nevada and Arizona receive the call for parts on Friday. The unusual hot spell is expect to reach parts of the Pacific Northwest by the end of the week.

Marc Chenard’s: on heat waves

National Weather Service meteorologist Marc Chenard, from College Park, Maryland, gave further insight. High temperatures are reaching well into the 90s and beyond, exceeding averages for this season by as much as 10 to 20 degrees in some locations. The most impacted areas will be southeast California, southern Nevada, and much of Arizona.

 Impact of 110-Degree Heat waves

Chenard pointed out that the longer duration of the heat waves will make it more impactful. “We do have several days where these temperatures will persist, and that usually adds to the impact. If there is just one day, it doesn’t tend to have as much of an impact,” he explained. When you experience two, three, or four consecutive days of intense heat, and even the nights remain warm, the impact becomes more pronounced.

The extreme heat has already proved deadly. The U.S. Border Patrol reported that four migrants died last weekend from heat-related causes while trying to cross the border in southeast New Mexico. Border Patrol El Paso Sector Chief Anthony Good urged migrants to reconsider crossing in such extreme conditions.The desert environment is extremely unforgiving during the summer months.

Fire Risks : Temperature Extremes

Fire crews in Arizona are on high alert. Restrictions went into place ahead of Memorial Day. In some areas and will expand across most of the western and south-central parts of the state . Tiffany Davila, spokesperson for the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, reported that this level of heat typically does’nt occur until mid or late June. Mother Nature is turning up the heat earlier than usual, as stated by her.

High temperatures on Monday reached 110 F (43.3 C) at Death Valley National Park, 103 F (39.4 C) in Phoenix, and 105 F (40.5 C) in Needles, California. In Las Vegas, where the high top out at 103 F (39.4 C) on Monday. The temperatures will rise 10 to 15 degrees above normal in the latter part of the week, peaking at 111 °C (43.8 °C on Thursday. Furnace Creek in Death Valley is forecast to hit 120 F (48.8 C) on Thursday.

Record-Breaking Predictions

Phoenix is forecast to hit 113 F (45 C) on Thursday, possibly surpassing the daily record high of 111 F (43.8 C) set in 2016. Last summer, Phoenix experienced a record 31 consecutive days of at least 110 F (43.3 C), which accounted for at least 400 of the 645 heat-related deaths during that period.

Efforts to Mitigate Heat Risks

Phoenix, Maricopa County, and Arizona state officials are taking action to protect residents from dangerous extreme heat. Among those most at risk are outdoor workers and people experiencing homelessness in cities. Where their often greatest lack of protection comes from a lack of shade, air conditioning, and cold water. More money is being provided by governments to make sure cooling stations. Open earlier for the day and that they will open on weekends, and some stay open around the clock.

Community Aid Programs

Mesa Mayor John Giles pointed out that the community takes its mission to help the most vulnerable very seriously. “We are commit to ensuring that  most vulnerable heat exposure have access to essential life-saving services, including hydration and cooling stations and daytime respite centers,” he stated.
