Excessive heat in that part of the world means an event fit for neither man nor snake. I pulled up the National Weather Service grid-point forecast for the Phoenix airport and forecast maximum temperatures climb from 103ºF today to 119ºF on Sunday. In the extended (not shown), forecast highs are 119ªF on Monday and 117ºF on Tuesday. The all-time record high in Phoenix is 122ºF, set on June 26th, 1990.
This is still a relatively long lead time forecast, so there's some uncertainty in just how high it will go, but an oppressively hot situation looks quite likely. Right now, northern Utah looks to be on the periphery of the worst temperatures, meaning temperatures above average this weekend (high 80s at the Salt Lake airport), but not at record levels. After that, we'll have to see.
