Last month was the hottest June on record in metro Phoenix

June 2024 was the hottest on record in Phoenix, with an average temperature of 97 degrees.

The National Weather Service says the previous record for June was set in 2021 at roughly 95 degrees.

Meteorologist Ryan Worley says the outlook for July calls for above-average temperatures.

“But how above average that could be is uncertain and if we start to see better moisture for the region that could also limit how high our temperatures can go," Worley said.

There is a slight chance of rain in the Phoenix area Monday and later this week. Highs are expected to approach 115 by Friday.
