Stay cool, there's another Excessive Heat Warning in place for Tuesday

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – There's another Excessive Heat Warning in place for Tuesday.

Tuesday's warning will last from noon until 7:00 in the evening.

Overnight lows in town drop to 73°. That will lead to a warm start Tuesday, allowing our highs to increase to 108°, which would also be a new record. The old record is currently 107° set in 1996.

The record heat breaks down slowly later in the week. However, the 100's stay in the forecast. Stay healthy in the heat by limiting time outside. And if you work or need to be outside for any period of time, the below information can help you stay safe. 

- Walk the pets in the early morning - pets paws cannot handle the hot pavement. Remember, if you cannot walk on the sidewalk barefoot, don't force your animal to do it.

- Wear loose-fitting and brighter-colored clothing.

- Drink plenty of water - with conditions this hot and dry, your sweat evaporates before you even realize you are sweating.

- Wear a wide-brimmed hat.

- Wear plenty of sun screen. This should be done every day, however when your body sweats, it can limit the effectiveness of your sunscreen and it should be applied regularly.

- Check on friends/family/neighbors to make sure everyone is staying cool and hydrated, plus check that air-conditioners/swamp coolers are working properly.
