Temperatures soar for the middle of the week

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The heat is here to stay, at least for the next week or so.  Temperatures Tuesday afternoon will be warming up to 108 degrees, five degrees above the 30-year average for this time of year. 

Winds will pick up a bit this afternoon.

Tomorrow will be the hottest day of the week, with highs soaring to 111 degrees.  The forecast has prompted the National Weather Service to issue an excessive heat watch for the Valley tomorrow. 

Just last week the Valley had three consecutive days to 110-degree temperatures or above, forcing residents to find ways to stay cool.

It's always a good reminder to stay inside during middle of the day and late in the afternoon when highs reach their peak.

Try to stay hydrated.  Dr. Jamal Mourad Banner Desert Medical Center said to drink four glasses of water for every hour you spend outside.

Mourad said to be on the lookout for signs that you are not drinking enough water.

"If you're thirsty, if you're lips are cracked and dry.  If you're urine is looking discolored, darker than usual.  If it's looking like tea instead of looking like water, you're not drinking enough," said Mourad.

In addition to the heat, dry and windy conditions are increasing the threat of wildfires across northwestern Arizona. 

The heat will start to ease up a bit for the end of the week.  Highs will hover around 107 degrees Friday and through the weekend.

The official start of the monsoon season is Saturday, June 15.  Although Arizona needs the rain, there is still no sign of precipitation in the next week or so.

Be sure to watch CBS 5's special, "Monsoon - Eye of the Storms" on Monday night at 7 p.m.  The Valley Pinpoint weather team will break down what viewers need to do to ride out the storms and stay safe.
