Triple digit temperatures have prompted an excessive heat warning. You need to take extra precautions especially if you have to be outside.

This is where things can get unbearable. Some people are not use to these types of temps and some are. Areas like Arizona can get hotter and Florida or the south with humidity.

I found this interesting according to weather.com the fact there is less smoke actually has the temp on the rise:

...VERY HOT TEMPERATURES TODAY... .A STRONG UPPER LEVEL HIGH, COMBINED WITH LESS SMOKE THAN EXPECTED, WILL RESULT IN VERY HOT TEMPERATURES TODAY. SOME OF THESE WILL BE RECORD OR NEAR-RECORD TEMPERATURES.

 

108 is what they have the high set for. Some areas could get hotter and some cooler. At that point does a few degrees matter? Stay hydrated and even when you don't think you are thirsty drink water. Water is the best thing during days like this. Limit your sugar and salty snacks/drinks.
