An extreme heat wave is engulfing the United States, with heat warnings and watches affecting around 150 million people across 21 states. The West is particularly bracing for potentially historic and dangerously high temperatures, with forecasts predicting temperatures reaching as high as 115 degrees in some areas. This heat wave has led to broken daily heat records in several regions, and more records are expected to be set in the coming days, with some areas experiencing all-time high temperatures.

As the heat wave intensifies, excessive heat warnings have been issued in multiple states, including California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, and Oregon. These warnings signify potentially life-threatening conditions due to long periods of extreme heat without relief overnight. The National Weather Service has raised concerns over the situation, calling it exceptionally dangerous and potentially historic, emphasizing the importance of taking precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses and fatalities. Heat-related ailments have been identified as a significant cause of weather-related deaths in the U.S.

The extreme temperatures are setting records in various cities, with California's San Rafael and Livermore reaching all-time highs. The heatwave is expected to last for an extended period, with some areas facing scorching temperatures for up to 12 days. To combat the heat, state agencies are working to open cooling centers, and cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco are under excessive heat warnings. Alongside the heatwave, there are concerns of wildfires due to dry conditions and high temperatures, prompting red flag warnings urging caution with open flames, especially during holiday fireworks displays. Additionally, severe storms are expected in parts of the country, leading to the potential for disruptions in holiday gatherings, including the risk of flash flooding and tornadoes in certain regions.
