The Phoenix area is approaching a record that most would likely not want to see.

It's the record for the number of days in a year the Phoenix area has reached at least 110 degrees.

The current record is 28 and the Phoenix area is at 26 and counting.

The chances are very good the Phoenix area will break the record soon because of forecasts of above-average temperatures throughout the week.

The latest the Phoenix area has hit 110 degrees was Sept. 15, 2000. That means the area has about a month to smash the record.

The official temperature for Phoenix is recorded at Sky Harbor.
