PHOENIX — The triple-digit temperatures have made their arrival in the Valley.

Phoenix on Saturday hit 100 degrees for the first time in 2022, according to the National Weather Service.

The mark was hit at about 2:12 p.m.

The city did get a slight reprieve from when it normally hits 100 degrees for the first time in a calendar year.

It was the latest date for the mercury to reach triple digits since 2010, when 100 degrees was hit on May 21.

Last year, 100 degrees first happened on May 5.

The average century-mark heat debut in Phoenix is May 2.

The triple-digit weather won’t stick around the Valley for long this time.

Sunday’s high will dip to 94 degrees before Phoenix starts its week out with a high of 89 degrees.

Phoenix recorded 104 days of triple-digit temperatures in 2021.
