ACTION DAY: High temps return, but storms expected next week

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Unseasonably hot temperatures return to the Tucson area as we close out the week.

The Tucson News Now First Alert weather team is tracking unseasonably hot temperatures through Friday afternoon.

As a result, the National Weather Service in Tucson has issued an excessive heat warning until 7 p.m. Friday.

The high temperatures during this time will run close to 10 degrees above average for this time of year, with record heat likely Friday afternoon. 

We are marking Friday as a First Alert Action Day since we'll most likely see high temperatures at or above 110 degrees.

Remember, heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer during the summer months in Arizona. Use caution and drink plenty of water and limit your time outdoors.

As moisture increases over the weekend, rain and storm prospects will increase slightly across much of southern Arizona.

By early next week, expect a better chance for widespread monsoon storms, along with temperatures closer to 100 degrees.
