PHOENIX (AP) - National Weather Service meteorologists say Phoenix has set a record for heat for the fourth consecutive day.

Monday’s high temperature of 111 degrees broke the previous June 6 record of 110 degrees set in 2013.

The normal high temperature in Arizona’s most populous city for the date is 102.

Phoenix hit 113 degrees on Sunday. The previous June 5 record was 112 degrees in 1990.

On Saturday, Phoenix had its earliest 115-degree day on record. It broke the June 4 record of 113 degrees, set in 1990.

Phoenix started the record high roll by hitting 113 degrees on Friday, topping the mark of 112 set in 1990.

Meteorologists say Phoenix’s weather will cool gradually as a weak system moves in from the Pacific and hovers over Arizona starting Tuesday afternoon.
