PHOENIX — The Valley’s first excessive heat episode of the year is expected to arrive this week and last through the weekend.

Temperatures are forecast to reach 110 degrees as soon as Thursday, according to the National Weather Service in Phoenix.

The high is expected to be 104 degrees Monday, 107 degrees on Tuesday, 108 degrees on Wednesday, then reaching 110 degrees on Thursday, 112 degrees on Friday and 113 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.

Chances for above normal temperatures remain at over 80 percent through the weekend and early next week, NWS said.

The excessive heat could affect other parts surrounding the Valley.

Parts of Gila County could see lightning strikes, which weather forecasters said doesn’t benefit the surrounding area.

“This will be bad news as it is the peak of wildfire season and lightning can spark fire,” NWS in Phoenix said.

During periods of extreme heat people are advised to stay hydrated, limit time spent outside and try to stay inside air-conditioned buildings, as well as remember to check on elderly family members and neighbors.
