Sunday will mark yet another hot day across the Southwest, with an area of high pressure overhead. In California, temperatures on Sunday will crack the century mark for the fourth consecutive day in Fresno and Bakersfield. Residents of Palm Springs will once again have to endure a high above 110 degrees.
It is not a "dry heat" that residents of the Southwest deserts will be enduring on Sunday. Relatively high humidity will be present, causing AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures to rise above actual temperatures.
Ways to beat Sunday's heat throughout the Southwest will not be confined to the use of air conditioners, fans and swimming pools. Residents could also head to San Francisco, San Diego or any California beach. Ocean air flowing inland will continue to keep temperatures along the coastline comfortable.
The blazing heat baking California will finally ease Monday into Tuesday as the high pressure shifts towards the Eastern Seaboard.
It should be noted that the heat will only ease, but not get fully erased across California. High temperatures will only return to typical mid-July values early next week, prompting the continued use of air conditioners and fans.
