PHOENIX (AP) — People across the Southwest were preparing Monday for more of the unrelenting heat that left two dead over the weekend.

The mercury hit 118 on Sunday, breaking a record of 115 set nearly 50 years ago, according to the National Weather Service. Portions of Arizona and southeast California were expected to keep getting scorched Monday with a high pressure ridge lifting out of Mexico.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bianca Hernandez anticipated more triple-digit temperatures.

“We’re expecting something similar with highs around 115 to 120, with the warmest areas in Southern California,” she said.

Going out early in the morning Sunday didn’t save a 28-year-old woman who became unresponsive while mountain biking with friends in north Phoenix. She had set out with two friends around 6 a.m., carrying water, but became exhausted about three hours later, then could not breathe.

Firefighters rescued the unidentified woman, who was an avid hiker and a personal trainer, and she later died at a hospital, fire Capt. Larry Subervi said. She had no known medical issues, and her condition appeared to be heat-related, authorities said.
