Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

It's the first day of October, but Mother Nature is turning on the burners this week. Triple digits this weekend, and today, 103 degrees. How normal is this?

The normal high for this date is 94 -- but today we hit a high of 103.

On average, the last day of the year for 100 degrees is the 3rd of October. The record last 100-degree day was October 23, 2003.

Usually in October, there are only 1 and a half days of 100 degrees. The record for the most 100-degree days is 15 days in 1991.

The forecast shows October 3 will be about 101 degrees.
