She's turning up the heat too

It's getting dangerously hot this week.

An excessive heat warning is in effect until Friday at 8 p.m. Temperatures are forecast to exceed 110 degrees for the rest of the week through Saturday.

Breaking a century-old record

The hottest day this week will be Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast high for that day (July 7) is currently 116. If it reaches that high, Phoenix will break the record set back in 1905.
