Yikes! High temps nearing all-time records across Arizona

This heat wave is no joke.

Usually when we talk about the high heat we specifically say Phoenix or the Valley and not Arizona out of respect for our (more often than not) cooler friends up in northern Arizona.

But this week, we can say Arizona is hot and mean ALL of Arizona.

High temps in cities and towns across the state are starting to move closer to all-time records.

The hottest day ever recorded in Phoenix was 122 degrees and Mother Nature is reaching for that again as Tuesday and Wednesday have forecast highs of 119 and 118.

Records in Flagstaff (97) and Tucson (117) could also see a change with forecast highs of 95 in Flagstaff and 115 in Tucson.
