Phoenix sees first 100-degree day of the year

PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix's temperature has heated up enough to reach triple digits for the first time this year.

The National Weather Service says the city hit 100 degrees for the first time Friday afternoon.

Meteorologist Mark O'Malley says seeing such a high temperature around this time of the year is typical. According to past data, Phoenix on average heats up to the 100-degree mark around May 2.

O'Malley says the temperature will drop back down this weekend to the mid and lower 90s.

But it will go down further to the upper- and mid-80s on Tuesday and Wednesday.
