Scorching weekend on tap for Valley - Tucson News Now

Scorching weekend on tap for Valley

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Valley residents might want to consider limiting their weekend activities to indoors as temperatures continue to hover around the 110-degree mark.

The Valley tied a record with 111 degrees Thursday and the National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning for Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. for Maricopa County and counties to the west.

Temperatures have been above average for the last several days, but highs will be closer to record highs than normal highs Friday and Saturday.

Temperatures will be warming up out of the upper 70s in the morning and into the triple digits by lunchtime.

The average 30-year high for June 6 is 102 degrees.

By Friday afternoon, highs will reach 111 degrees. This hot weather is arriving in the Valley pretty much on time. Phoenix, on average, hits 110 degrees for the first time each year on June 10.

It's always a good reminder to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated during the hot season.  Also, try to wear loose fitted, light colored clothing and plan to do your outdoor activities in the early morning hours. 

Heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer in the United States, so be careful as those temperatures rise in the coming days.

Saturday will not bring any relief from the heat. Highs should reach 110 degrees. By Sunday, highs will be slightly cooler, around 106 to 107 degrees.
