PHOENIX (AP) — Another heat record for Phoenix.
The National Weather Service says Monday's high of 90 degrees was the latest the temperature has reached that mark in a calendar year in Phoenix's history.
The previous latest 90-degree day in the city came on Nov. 15, 1999.
Weather Service meteorologists say the last 90-degree day of the year in Phoenix usually happens by Oct. 28.
Phoenix already has shattered its record for the most days of triple-digit heat in a calendar year with 144, topping the previous record of 143 days in 1989.
Between June and August this year, Phoenix reported 50 days with a high temperature of at least 110 degrees.
That bested the record of 33 days set in 2011.
Phoenix also had its hottest August ever since tracking began in 1896.
