PHOENIX — It’s raining. It’s pouring. The old man is snoring.

Phoenix tied the record for the coldest afternoon temperature of 36 degrees on Monday at Sky Harbor International Airport.

The afternoon is being classified as 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The only other day in Sky Harbor history that reached temperatures that low during the afternoon was on Dec. 6, 1998.

Rain, hail and even snow — yes, real snow — was seen falling across the Valley on Monday.
