100th day of 100 degree heat
Well we did it again!
Thursday marked the 100th day of 100-degree temperatures, and there are likely more on the horizon.
Friday’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 102, with Saturday’s the same except for a high of 101.
The National Weather Service reported that the 100th day of 100 degree days puts Phoenix ahead of the average of about 90 days a year through 1995, the most recent figures available. The fewest 100-degree days was 48 in 1914 and the most was 143 in 1989.
