PHOENIX — The scorching summer heat is here.

Phoenix recorded its first 110-degree day of the year at 3:55 p.m. on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

The record high for the date is 112 degrees, which was set in 2019.

The mark occurred at about the normal time in the city as the average date for the first 110-degree day of the year is June 11.

Phoenix reached 100 degrees for the first time this year on May 5. The earliest that the city has ever recorded a high of 110 degrees was on May 8, 1989.

An excessive heat warning was issued for most of next week in Phoenix as temperatures are expected to eclipse 115 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The warning will go into effect Sunday at 10 a.m. and run through 8 p.m. the following Friday because of the forecast high temperatures.

Sunday’s high is expected to reach 113 degrees. The forecast for Monday is 115 degrees before a 117-degree day on Tuesday and 116 degrees on Wednesday.

During periods of extreme heat, experts advise people to stay hydrated, limit the amount of time outside, try to stay inside air-conditioned buildings and remember to check on elderly family members and neighbors.
