Arizona Is Hotter Right Now Than It Has Been In Over 40 Years

We rejoiced when we heard that temperatures are predicted to be cooler than normal across the Grand Canyon State this year, but if you’ve been outdoors lately, the weather has been anything but mild – and the summer season hasn’t even officially begun. New information released by leading weather sources suggests that we may have gotten our hopes up too high. According to the National Weather Service, Phoenix matched a record high temperature set well over 40 years ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
