-Anchorage, Alaska Has Been Warmer Than Phoenix
The NWS says over the last 30 years, the temperature hits 100 degrees in Phoenix on May 2, on average.
Of course, Valley residents would know that 100 degrees is kids' stuff -- when it hits 110 degrees is when it starts getting real, and starts approaching 120 degrees in the summer.
Still, it's quite the improvement over January, when, for a few days, Anchorage, Alaska was warmer than Phoenix.
The NWS says the 100-degree plus temperatures are only lasting through Tuesday, for now.
