Looming heat wave could push Phoenix, Vegas temps to 115 F or higher

• Accuweather

Following near-normal temperatures to start the week, a major change is on the way for much of the West by week's end. While many areas will encounter unseasonable warmth by the weekend, AccuWeather forecasters say a few triple-digit temperatures more typical of late June or early July are expected.

The turn to summerlike conditions will begin in earnest this weekend over much of the western half of the country. A northward bulge will build in the jet stream and allow warmer air back into much of the West.
