FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The unofficial end of summer is upon us and some parts of the country will be breaking records.
The west coast and southwest of the United States is going to experience record-breaking heat.
The local National Weather Service offices issued an Excessive Heat Warning Friday morning and it will continue through Labor Day.
High temperatures on Saturday will range from the 90s into the mid 100s.
Sunday is forecast to be the hottest day, as highs soar as high as 115 degrees away from the coast.
When #heatrisk reaches the magenta color it means a rare, dangerous, & very possibly deadly event. This is the case for Sunday - the hottest day of the holiday weekend. Don't take chances with heat - more people die from heat than all other weather hazards COMBINED! #LAheat #CAwx pic.twitter.com/lAo0aDmM2Z
