Kids play in the fountains at Universal CityWalk, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Universal City, Calif. When bracing for 120 degrees, it's all about the water. Drinking it, splashing in it to stay cool, and drinking it some more. A lot more. That's what officials were urging and residents were planning Friday as a potentially record-shattering heat wave started enveloping the Southwest United States and threatened to bring temperatures of more than 120 degrees to parts of Arizona and California next week.

People enjoy the cooler weather in Manhattan Beach, Calif., Sunday, June 18, 2017. Skies cleared intermittently and then a steady onshore breeze kept the marine layer pressed against the shoreline. Almost all of inland California was predicted to simmer this week at above normal temperatures. The National Weather Service has warned those spending time outside to, when possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. (AP Photo/John Antczak)
