PHOENIX — The calendar says it should be fall in Phoenix, but the weather refuses to cooperate.

Phoenix set another daily heat record on Monday, hitting a high temperature of 105 degrees.

The previous record high for the day was 104 degrees set in 1987.

The mark is the continuation of an unusually warm October.

Phoenix has had five consecutive days of 105 degrees or greater in October, a new record for the month.

There’s a chance Phoenix breaks the mark for most 100-degree days in a calendar year as well.

There have been 138 days of 100 degrees as of Monday, just six off surpassing the record set in 1989.

High temperatures are forecast to be above 100 degrees through Thursday.

Phoenix experienced the hottest meteorological summer on record, which includes June, July and August.

Between June and August, Phoenix reported 50 days with a high temperature of at least 110 degrees, surpassing the record of 33 days set in 2011.

We want to hear from you.
