Excessive Heat Warning Issued For Phoenix Area

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for Phoenix that will remain in effect until at least Wednesday night.

Meteorologist Travis Wilson said Valley residents will need to alter their daily routines.

“If you can avoid outdoor activity such as working or even exercising, we encourage that to be done late in the evening or very early in the morning, really avoid that afternoon sun,” Wilson said.

Wilson said people should keep their pets inside and check on older relatives to make sure their air conditioning is working and they have access to plenty of fluids.

The expected high temperature for Tuesday is 107 degrees.

Daniel Perle rejoined the KJZZ team in May 2019, after interning during the summer of 2017.A recent graduate of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Perle served as the editor-in-chief of the online student-run newspaper, the Downtown Devil, and as the news director for Blaze Radio, ASU’s student-run station. While in school, Perle reported on enterprise topics such as former Arizona Cardinals players suffering from the aftermath of their careers in football and the process which felons in Arizona must go through to restore their right to vote.When he’s not in the newsroom — and probably when he’s in it — Perle is scrolling through Twitter. Other than that, he enjoys reading Kurt Vonnegut novels and practicing his three-point shooting.
