WEST COAST BRACED FOR “FORMIDABLE” HEATWAVE
A formidable heatwave is set to grip the West Coast over the next week, sending temperatures soaring above 100F.
The early-season hot spell could also break more than 130 heat records from Southern California all the way up to parts of Washington State.
Temperatures will edge over the 100F mark as far north as Eastern Washington during the heat wave’s peak, forecasts from the National Weather Service show.
Some communities in California’s Central Valley could also be hit with temperatures as high as 110F in the coming days.
Similarly, in northern California, highs will range from 20 to 25 degrees above average for this time of year.
