It’s been a little steamy down south….especially in Phoenix, AZ. Yesterday(Oct. 13) they reached 100° or higher for the 143rd straight day. That ties a record set back in 1989. The streak might come to halt today, as the high is only expected to reach 99. As of yesterday, half of the days in 2020 have had a high over 100° in Phoenix.
Day number 143 with a high of 100°F or higher has been reached in Phoenix. The thermometer just reached 100°F this afternoon. This ties the previous record for a calendar year with 1989. There is a good chance we break the record tomorrow or on the following days. #azwx pic.twitter.com/NpFNOikgRV
