PHOENIX — We’re less than a week into April, but the Phoenix area is already seeing record-breaking heat.
The first five days of the month in Phoenix were the warmest on record, according to the National Weather Service.
With an average high temperature of 96 degrees, the last week has been well above the seasonal average high in the low 80s.
The sizzling start to the month may stick around for the foreseeable future.
Temperatures across the Valley are expected to stay in the 90s for the remainder of the week.
This comes after a year in which the Valley broke countless heat records on top of a dismally dry monsoon in 2020.
Arizona has seen its fair share of severe weather. Here is a compilation of videos from various storms across the Grand Canyon state.
