PHOENIX (AP) — Another record-tying heat day has hit Phoenix.

The National Weather Service says Phoenix had a high of 114 degrees Monday.

That tied the mark for Aug. 3 set in 1975 and tied in 2009 and 2019.

Last Thursday, Phoenix posted a high of 118 degrees -- topping the previous record of 115 set in 1934.

That temperature also marked the sixth-warmest day on record for the city.

Weather service meteorologists say July 2020 went into the record books as the hottest month in Phoenix history.
