Thermometers in Southern Arizona are expected to top 105 degrees Monday, with some hitting 108, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a heat advisory. The low-down: stay in the shade if you can't stay indoors.

The advisory, in effect until 6 p.m., covers the Tucson metro area, the Tohono O'Odham Nation, western Pima County and south-central Pinal County.

The Weather Service warned those who must work or spend time outdoors to take extra precautions. If you can, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, wear light-weight and loose-fitting clothing, and drink plenty of water to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Temperatures in the Phoenix area and westward might be even higher. The Weather Service issued an excessive heat watch, warning of temps up to 112 degrees on Monday and Tuesday.
