PHOENIX (AP) - Southern Arizona is seeing record high temperatures again.

The National Weather Service says hit 113 degrees on Sunday, marking the third day in a row at setting record high temperatures in Arizona’s Urban Heart.

Sunday’s high beat the previous record of 112 degrees in 1990.

Much of Southern Arizona, from Phoenix to Nogales, remained under an excessive heat warning.

Other western and southwestern U.S. states are experiencing above-normal temperatures in the triple-digits.

Officials are warning residents to stay hydrated and avoid the outdoors between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when temperatures are highest.

The Arizona Department of Health also says that neither people nor pets should be left in cars. It takes only 10 minutes for a car to reach deadly temperatures.
