After peaking around 96 degrees on Friday at the Napa County Airport, temperatures should soar to 99 degrees on Saturday and 101 degrees on Sunday before dropping to 94 degrees on Monday, according to the Weather Service.

An excessive heat warning is in effect for the Coachella Valley and the San Gorgonio Pass zone, which includes the cities of Banning and Desert Hot Springs, will remain in until 9 p.m. Wednesday. In Southern California, the hottest temperatures will be in the deserts with highs over 110 degrees.

"There is absolutely no doubt we will be near all-time highs with this heat wave, with the hottest and most risky temperatures expected Monday through Wednesday", the National Weather Service in Phoenix said, offering heat safety tips.

The heat index is a measure of "how hot it really feels" when relative humidity is taken into account with air temperature, according to the weather service. People with heat sensitivities should take steps to protect themselves. That could rival the all-time high temperature of 122 degrees set at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in 1990.

The hot conditions are labeled as a classic pre-monsoon heat event for the Southwest region, NWS said. Employers need to ensure workers are drinking plenty of water and taking breaks in the shade as temperatures rise, the state agency says.

"The very high temperatures could create a unsafe situation in which heat related illnesses are possible", the advisory read.

Heat will also scorch the central valley of California, where cities such as Bakersfield, Fresno and Sacramento will see highs over 100 degrees.
