The famously hot city cranked the heat up to 104 degree on Sunday afternoon – the highest for the year so far.
That’s according to Doug Anderson, meteorological technician at the National Weather Service.
In addition, the heat set a record temperature for the date. The previous record for July 3 was 103 degrees, set back in 1970.
The first day of 2016 to top 100 degrees was June 16, which hit 101, Anderson said.
Never miss a local story.
If setting a record high wasn’t enough, Sunday also tied for the date’s warmest low temp, starting out at 77 degrees in the morning. That record was set back in 1897.
Monday’s high is forecast near 100, according to NWS. Highs for each day the rest of the week are predicted to be near 99, 98, 99, 99 and 99, respectively.
