#Phoenix Sky Harbor has already hit at least 115°F for their high temperature again today for the 5th day in a row. This sets a new record for consecutive 115°F days in #Phoenix dating back to August 1895. Stay hydrated and monitor kids, elders, and pets for heat impacts! #azwx
The high today in Phoenix reached 113°F. Would you believe us if we told you there was a location over 1,200 mile north of here that was hotter? Lytton, B.C. broke the Canadian record high set in 1937 with a high of 46.6°C (116°F) today. Here are other warm spots. #azwx #cawx
Phoenix had an unprecedented 53 days of 110° of greater. Even though our annual trend is increasing, this was well out of bounds. However based on how our climate is changing & long term climate modeling, 50 days may become closer to the normal number in 20-40 years.
