Record Breaking Heat Wave Strikes Phoenix

A late-sea­son hot spell is set­ting records across the drought-strick­en South­west, set­ting the stage for an uptick in fire activ­i­ty head­ing into the weekend.

Phoenix is nor­mal­ly one of the hottest cities in the Unit­ed States, but this year has been abnor­mal­ly hot in the Val­ley of the Sun. As of Wednes­day, Nov. 17, the city has tied or bro­ken dai­ly high-tem­per­a­ture records on 33 occa­sions, includ­ing three times this week.

On Mon­day, Phoenix topped out at 92 F, mak­ing it the lat­est 90-degree day on record for the city. This record was bro­ken the very next day when the mer­cury once again sur­passed the 90-degree mark.
