News 11 Weather Authority: Excessive heat coming

June 6th, 2022

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - We start off the 1st full week of the month of June with near normal to above normal temperature readings.

Between Yuma and El Centro, our Monday daytime highs ranged between 103 to 107 degrees.

Those numbers are going to surge even higher, with the National Weather Service issuing an Excessive Heat Watch from Thursday of this week to the end of the upcoming weekend.

The strongest ridge of high pressure we've seen this year will begin to settle in by the mid-point of this week.

Daytime high mercury will sizzle anywhere from 107 to 116 degrees in that span of time.
