PHOENIX — As the month of June came to an end on Tuesday, Phoenix set the record for its hottest June ever, according to the National Weather Service.

The average temperature over the course of the month was 95.3 degrees.

It breaks the previous record of 94.8 set in 2013 and matched in 2016.

During periods of extreme heat, experts advise people to stay hydrated, limit the amount of time outside, try to stay inside air-conditioned buildings and remember to check on elderly family members and neighbors.

Despite the high temperatures, the Valley has had a slight cooldown this week and there is a possibility of rain.

Thursday’s forecast shows an expected high of 102 degrees then a slight increase each of the following days: 103 on Friday, 104 on Saturday and 105 on Sunday.

Rain chances will remain between 30%-50% through Sunday, according to NWS.
