Heatwave gripping Phoenix Valley

Climate News: Arizona, USA
March 17, 2007

A high-pressure system that developed over the Southwest brought sunny skies to the Valley this week along with record-high temps.

A high of 96 degrees Friday broke the old record of 95 degrees set for the Valley in 1921.

Friday is the earliest date in the year, through 111 years of record keeping, that temps in Phoenix climbed above 95 degrees. The old record was set on March 21, 2004.

And further, the average date of climbing above 95 degrees for the first time in the year is more than a month from now in late April.

New record highs will likely be set again Saturday and possibly Sunday in both Phoenix and Yuma.
