An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur.

Expected high temperatures in the middle 90s to around 100 degrees will combine with humid conditions to bring afternoon heat indices into the 103 to 110 degree range.

As of now, the scale goes to 137 degrees. This would increase to eight days a year on average by mid-century and 23 by the century's end. Those temperatures were used to calculate several scenarios for "heat index" increase - if we do nothing, if changes are adopted slowly and if changes are adopted rapidly.

"We have little to no experience with "off-the-charts" heat in the USA", said Erika Spanger-Siegfried, lead climate analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists and report co-author.

Some parts of south Santa Barbara County, the 5 Freeway corridor from Castaic Lake to the Grapevine and the Southland's mountains and valleys also remain under brief critical fire advisories by the weather service because dry and warm conditions paired with gusty winds are expected.

Heat is the No. 1 weather killer, taking more lives each year on average than tornadoes and hurricanes combined.

As for current hotspots like Harris County, Texas, the "do nothing" heat index outlook is decidedly not good. (40); Avondale-Goodyear, Ariz. (38); Indio-Cathedral City; Calif. (37); Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz.

"If we wish to spare people in the United States and around the world the mortal dangers of extreme and relentless heat, there is little time to do so and little room for half measures", according to the report.

Widespread "increases in extreme heat" due to climate change could bring unprecedented risks to the USA in coming decades, a new study has warned. The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended exposure.
