PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix area, south-central Arizona and much of southwestern Arizona on Thursday are again under an excessive heating warning.

The warning issued by the National Weather Service runs until 8 p.m. Thursday.

Forecasters say highs Thursday will range between 110 and 115 degrees in many low desert locations.

Yuma on Wednesday set a record for the date at 117, surpassing the record of 115 set on July 23 in 1959.

Also on Wednesday, Phoenix tied the day's record of 114, which was set in 2006.
