Dangerously hot temperatures expected in Tucson next week

Dangerously hot temperatures expected in Tucson next week

Summer Heat

Chris Reits loaded palm tree trimmings into a chipper under the summer sun on June 12. Tucson’s average temperature in June was more than 2 degrees above normal.

Oh, monsoon rains. Why did you have to leave us?

Hopefully monsoons will make a comeback soon. But until then, expect hot weather. Lots of it.

An excessive heat warning is in place on Monday and Tuesday for most of southeast Arizona. 

Temperatures could reach 115 degrees in Pima County, the National Weather Service reports. An excessive heat warning is in place when temperatures are expected to reach 105 degrees or more for at least a 2-hour span.

Note that elderly, infants, and people with certain medical conditions should take extra precautions when an excessive heat warning is in effect. 

But in general, it's always important for everyone to remember to stay hydrated and stay indoors if you can.

And if you miss the monsoons like we do, here are some photos to gawk at.
