Posted on Oct-27-2016 at 00:00:00

Today is looking like it will be a record-setting day. So just how many weather records could Phoenix tie/break today?

The forecast high today in Phoenix is 98 degrees, which would tie the record high for the day set in 2001. The temperature could easily jump another degree to 99, which would break the record high for the day.

If the temperature hits 98 degrees this afternoon, it will tie the record for the latest-ever 98-degree temperature in Phoenix. The last time this happened was in 2003.

If the temperature reaches 99-degrees this afternoon in Phoenix, it will break the record for the latest ever recorded 99-degree temperature. The current record is October 23rd set in 2003.

While it would be two degrees above the current forecast, if Phoenix hits the century mark this afternoon it would be the latest ever recorded 100-degree day on record. The current record stands at Oct 23rd which occurred in 2003.

Time will tell which of the above records will be tied/broken in Phoenix today. Always remember, be sure to stay hydrated if you are doing anything outdoors and NEVER leave children or pets in your car unattended for any length of time.
