Extreme heat forces flight cancellations in Southwest. Mercury expected to hit 120 in Phoenix – Los Angeles Times

Dozens of flights have been delayed and canceled out of Phoenix Sky Harbor on Tuesday as the city — and much of the region — withers under another day of excessively hot temperatures.

The National Weather Service reported that Phoenix is expected to hit 120 degrees by late Tuesday afternoon. That would be two degrees shy of the all-time hottest recorded temperature in Phoenix set in 1990.

Las Vegas is also expected to tie its all-time hottest mark of 117 degrees. That hasn’t happened since 2013, and it would only be the third time the city has reached that temperature.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kate Guillet said the temperatures are expected to remain hot through the rest of the week — though Tuesday should be the peak day for heat.
