Excessive heat warning issued for parts of Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) – Much of south-central and southwestern Arizona is likely to see hotter temperatures over the next two days.

The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Areas in Arizona covered by the warning stretches from Yuma and other communities along the Colorado River eastward into the Phoenix area and the Pinal County communities of Casa Grande, Coolidge and Flores.

Officials say the temperature is expected to climb to between 112 and 115 degrees on both days.

The warning is in effect from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. both days.

Residents who work or play outdoors face a greater risk of heat-related illness.

The Weather Service is advising people to drink more water than usual, wear a hat outside and take rest breaks in air-conditioned places.
