Phoenix's average temperature in January was just over 61 degrees, making it the third warmest for the month.

The average high temperature was just shy of 74 degrees. Tucson had a record warmest average temperature of 59.1 degrees after notching a record 19 days with highs that were 75 degrees or warmer.
