Phoenix could set new heat records next week


- Advertisment -

After a brief run of sweater weather, temperatures are heating back up in Phoenix, and a new set of potential records are up for grabs. 

Monday through Thursday, temperatures will be inching close to 90 degrees in the lower deserts. If temperatures overperform, Phoenix could see the latest 90-degree day ever recorded.

The previous record was set on Nov. 15, 1999. 

Austin Jamison, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Phoenix, said “overperform” is the key word as Monday, which is expected to reach 88 degrees, is the “week’s closest contender.”

“Right now, we are really only seeing a 25% chance of setting a new record Monday,” Jamison said. “It could wind up being a little warmer, but we think the most likely outcome will be hitting below the record.” 

However, Tuesday is also expected to hit 88 degrees, meaning it would break the previous record of 87 degrees set in 2008.

“For Tuesday, there is a 50% chance of breaking that record and a 70% chance of at least tying,” Jamison said. “That’s pretty darn close.”
