Record-breaking triple-figure heat to hit the US with experts issuing severe warning over 'life-threatening' weather

A RECORD-breaking heatwave will bake parts of the US this week as meteorologists warn locals of the potential life-threatening outdoor conditions.

A heat advisory is in effect for several Southwestern states, including Texas, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of California, with temperatures expected to hit triple digits and intensify throughout the week.

According to AccuWeather, the affected areas will experience their hottest temperatures of the year so far.

"A northward bulge in the jet stream will expand and strengthen late in the week, especially from Thursday through Saturday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Thompson said.

Residents in Phoenix and Palm Springs, California, will see their first 110-degree day late this week.

In Texas, record high temperatures for early June typically hit around 90-degrees; however, conditions are expected to climb above 100-degrees later in the week.

Parts of Florida experienced severe flooding and rainy weather as Tropical Storm Alex passed through the state and moved toward Bermuda.

Hours after the storm had passed, the roads of Miami-Dade county were flooded with water leaving many cars stranded.

There were multiple reports of flooded cars that had to get towed from where they were.

First responders used high water rescue vehicles to assist people to safety who were stranded in the waters.

The storm dropped 12 inches of rain on downtown Miami and over nine and a half inches on South Miami.

Miami Beach mayor Dan Gelber said the storm tested the system of drainage pumps that were installed in the city recently, reports US News.

“We moved the water off pretty quickly, but in some areas, obviously, it was really challenging,” Gelber said.

“There were some problems getting through on some streets, one of the main arteries was unpassable, but by and large, water is dissipating.”

Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine-Cava, also said the flooding was due to storm drains that weren't working properly, causing water to come back up through the drains.

The National Hurricane Center forecasters said on Sunday morning Alex has maximum sustained winds of 50mph and is moving northeast at 22mph.
