End may be in sight for Phoenix’s historic heat wave of 110-degree-plus weather

PHOENIX (AP) — A historic heat wave continues to stifle Phoenix — but the end may finally be in sight for residents of Arizona’s largest city. The National Weather Service is forecasting a high of 107 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday and 102 Fahrenheit on Tuesday. Meteorologists say Phoenix reached 112 Fahrenheit by early afternoon Sunday and could top out at 114 Fahrenheit. Either way, it eclipsed the previous record of 111 Fahrenheit for that date, set in 1990. It also marked the 55th day this year that the official reading at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport reached at least 110 Fahrenheit.
