This warning applies to both Death Valley National Park and the Las Vegas Valley.

Dangerous temperatures will exceed the seasonal average by 6.7 to 7.8 degrees Celsius.

The situation is so severe that wildfires have been reported, exacerbated by the high temperatures.

These fires occurred during Independence Day in California. Additionally, 125 million people are under heat alerts across the country.

Temperatures are expected to range from 100 to 120 °F (37.8 to 48.9 degrees C) in the West.

In the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, expected temperatures are between 80 and 100 °F (26.7 to 37.8 °C).

USA Today indicated that Saturday was the hottest day of the heat wave, with temperatures exceeding 109 °F (43.3 °C) in much of California.

Coastal areas and higher elevations will be exempt from these extreme temperatures. In the Southwest Desert, temperatures above 120 °F (48.9 °C) are possible.

The heat wave poses significant risks to health and public safety, according to Infobae.

Authorities are urging the population to take additional precautions. It is recommended to avoid prolonged sun exposure and stay hydrated.
