PHOENIX — Temperatures are continuing to climb as summer quickly approaches, and Phoenix is definitely feeling the heat.
Sky Harbor Airport reported a record high of 106 degrees at around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, making it the hottest day the Phoenix area has experienced in 2020. The record-breaking moment comes as 5 million Arizonans are under an excessive heat warning extending into Thursday.
That record may not be the only one broken Wednesday. If Phoenix reaches 107 degrees, it will officially be the hottest May 6 the city has ever had.
The original hottest May 6 was back in 2018 when the temperature was 106 degrees.
Thankfully, temperatures are looking to get a little cooler throughout the week, with highs this weekend being at 102 degrees.
