The heat across the West is so intense that Death Valley will approach the world's hottest temperature record.
Close to 100 years after setting the world's all-time record high, temperatures in Death Valley are expected to dangerously soar to 130 degrees Sunday and Monday.
The record is currently 134 degrees from July 10, 1913.
Even though the world's all-time record high should remain untouched, the June record high for the United States is in jeopardy. Volcano Springs, Calif., and its 129 degrees from June 23, 1902, currently holds this record.
Death Valley should also break its own June all-time record high of 128 degrees from June 29, 1994, on Sunday.
