Stay indoors if you can: Excessive heat warning issued for Tucson today

Stay indoors if you can: Excessive heat warning issued for Tucson today

  • Updated

With the help of Jaleesa Lopez, 10, far right, his sister, Orlando Celaya, 1, sprays his brother, Marsaleno Oliver, 7, while cooling off in the splash pad at Catalina Park on July 23, 2018. Jessica Lopez, their mother, said the air-conditioning in the house broke down and she brought her kids to the splash pad to cool off as the outdoor temperature soared beyond 105-degrees.

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. 

High: 110

Low: 81
