PHOENIX (AP) - An excessive heat warning in the Phoenix metropolitan area has been extended until Sunday in the wake of record-breaking temperatures.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport recorded a high of 117 degrees Friday. That topped the city’s previous record for Aug. 14, which was 113 degrees set in 2012.

The National Weather Service says it also was the hottest day on record in Phoenix since the mercury hit 119 degrees on June 29, 2013.

Meteorologists say high temperatures in the Phoenix metro area this weekend could range between 110 to 115 degrees.
