Hot baby HOT….

Ok this is getting rediculous! And it’s funny in the article below that they mention that we had 3 record breaking days in november — considering the article was written on November 6, that would mean HALF of the days in this month alone… we had 18 days in October above 90 and uggggg enough ALREADY!!!!

After the warmest summer on record since records were first recorded in 1895, we’re moving into to fall with record temperatures as well. Monday, we broke our old record of 92 in 1980 at Phoenix Sky Harbor with a high of 93. A strong area of high pressure will continue to dominate our weather for the rest of the work week, therefore, near, or above record high temps will continue. There is relief in the forecast, by the weekend, as a Pacific storm will bring cooler temps and a chance of rain for parts of the state.

Temperatures will remain well above normal and even reach records once again today. Today’s high in Phoenix will reach 93, which would tie our record of 93 in 1934. We’ve seen three days in November with highs in the 90s. The average last day of 90 degree high temps is October 24th. 90s in November seem a bit abnormal, but it really isn’t. The latest day on record to reach 90 degrees or greater was November 15th in 1999, so we’re not out of the woods, just yet!

High pressure continues to be the dominant weather feature throughout the work week, keeping our temperatures well above normal and record highs in the forecast. By Saturday and Sunday, a Pacific storm moves through the state, bringing cooler temperatures. High temps will eventually drop back down to our normal range for November, into the upper 70s by Sunday and Monday. That storm will also bring partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of rain in the High Country. To get a look at the current temperature in your city, go to 12 News Weather Plus.
