According to an NBC News report, More record-breaking temperatures were forecast for western parts of the United States Sunday, part of extreme weather that has already caused at least one suspected heat-related death.

Temperatures will continue to soar well into the 110s and even 120s into the new week ahead across the Southwest, Weather.com forecasters warned Sunday, raising fears that more people could fall victim to the excessive heat.

Hot temperatures will also spread throughout the valleys of the Great Basin and Northwest, but not to the levels witnesses in the Desert Southwest, it said.

 
 
 

Saturday saw a slew of weather records broken, Weather.com reported, including in Phoenix, Ariz. which saw its fourth-hottest day in history with a temperature of 119 degrees.
