PHOENIX (AP) - Record-breaking temperatures are overtaking parts of Arizona through the weekend.
The National Weather Service says Phoenix hit 84 degrees Sunday, tying the record for the hottest temperature for that date.
Phoenix broke a previous record Saturday of 83 degrees with a high of 86 degrees.
Kingman has also enjoyed record-breaking highs. Saturday's 77 was a record for Feb. 15, while Friday's high of 78 tied the record set in 1957.
Meteorologist Mark O'Malley attributes the warm temperatures to a lingering high pressure system off the California coast.
O'Malley says it will remain warm today with a high of 85 in Phoenix. The record for that date is 87 degrees.
In Kingman, temperatures are forecast to stay in the 70s at least until Thursday.
Residents of Tucson have also been feeling the heat. The city saw a record 88 degrees Saturday. The previous high was 85.
Tucson on Sunday reached a temperature of 84 degrees. The record is 85.
Monday would also be warmer with a predicted high of 86.
