Southwest Swelters as Summer Beckons

As we cruise into the latter part of June, summer activities are in full swing. Kids are off of school, families are taking vacations, and once again, the Desert Southwest explodes into a monster heat wave.

Last year, Summer was welcomed with some brutal heat, coinciding with Electric Daisy Carnival 2015, as Vegas hit 110+ on back to back days during the wildly popular music festival. EDC 2016 is already underway as Friday’s high peaked at 97 and today hit 101… however the biggest part of the impending heat wave is going to move in starting Sunday. Vegas looks to hit 110 Monday and stay above that through Wednesday. Meanwhile, Phoenix is cracking 115 degrees for the next couple of days, and of course, the King of High Temperatures, Death Valley leads the way with FIVE straight days of 120+ degree highs forecasted. Summer certainly is going to come in like a lion when it officially starts on Monday evening.
