Phoenix residents need to pack some extra sunscreen as the National Weather Service forecasts extreme heat going into the work week. Temperatures are expected to hit or exceed 110 degrees.

"Going into the middle of the week, we’re gonna see some of that excessive heat redevelop over the area. We have an excessive heat watch out for Tuesday through Thursday for south central Arizona," NWS meteorologist Ted Whittock said.

The NWS recommends avoiding exposure to the sun from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the excessive heat watch in effect Tuesday through Thursday for the Phoenix metro area plus other portions of south-central and northwest Arizona.

Temperatures could reach 111 F or higher during that span.

“As we get to these first couple weeks of June, a lot of places are really starting to see those temperatures escalate,” said Todd Shoemake of NWS in Albuquerque. “Southern California, southern Nevada, southwestern Arizona, they’re starting to see lots of triple digits.”

Last Thursday, Phoenix hit 110 F for the first time this year with a record-setting high of 113 F.
