PHOENIX — An excessive heat warning has been issued for Sunday and Monday in Phoenix with temperatures expected to approach 110.

Sunday in Phoenix is forecasted to reach a high of 106 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday’s high is expected to reach 108 degrees, with hot weather continuing into the week.

The Phoenix metro area is expected to reach 108 degrees on Tuesday before slightly dipping down to 107 degrees on Wednesday and 106 on Thursday.

Under a recently adopted city of Phoenix policy, hiking trails on Camelback Mountain and at the Piestewa Peak trailhead are restricted from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. while an excessive heat warning is active.

The Arizona Department of Health Services said almost 3,000 people a year wind up in emergency rooms around the state suffering from heat-related illnesses.

Homeless, infants, young children and adults 65 or older are among those who are most susceptible to heat-related illnesses.

To protect yourself against heat sickness, the health department recommends drinking water, dressing properly for hot weather, wearing sunscreen and avoiding strenuous activity, among other things.
