PHOENIX – Just when we thought the Excessive Heat Warning would end early Sunday morning, it has been extended into Monday.

The warning is in effect for the Phoenix metro area until 5 a.m. Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

A high of 112 degrees is forecast for the Valley on Sunday.

Phoenix hit 114 degrees on Saturday, which set a record high.

Be sure to take the proper precautions during extreme temperatures:

Stay inside.
Restrict outdoor activity to early morning or late evening.
Wear loose-fitting clothes.
Drink plenty of water.
Check on young kids and the elderly.
