Tucson weather: High temperatures and an excessive heat warning

An excessive heat warning is in place today throughout southeast Arizona. Cross your fingers that it won’t be extended into tomorrow.

An excessive heat warning is put in place when temperatures are expected to hit 105 degrees or higher for at least two hours at a time. 

It’s important to stay hydrated and limit your time outdoors when a heat warning is in place. Children, elders, and people with certain medical conditions should take extra care. 

As for some light at the end of the tunnel, the National Weather Service predicts that we can expect to see some rain later this week, with highs in the 90’s.
