PHOENIX -- As of 3:14 p.m. Friday, the high at Sky Harbor International Airport was 111 degrees, a new record for today's date.

The previous record, 110, went back 35 years to 1977.

The good news is we expect moderating temperatures for the weekend statewide. Saturday's high will be around 106 and Sunday we'll be down around 101.

The other bit of improving news: The High Pollution Advisory for Ozone will be allowed to expire this evening. It looks like some favorable winds will help to clear out some of the ozone around metro Phoenix.
