LAS VEGAS (AP) — For the second year in a row, June has set a record in Las Vegas for being the hottest ever.
The National Weather Service said Friday that the average temperature recorded at McCarran International Airport last month was 92.5 degrees.
This breaks the previous record of 91.9 degrees set in June 2015.
The months of June in 2012 and 2013 are also among the hottest ever recorded.
Thursday’s monsoon weather pattern that brought heavy thunderstorms also made June 2016 the third wettest on record, with a total of 0.49 inch of rain.
The weather service said 0.47 inch came on the last day of the month, making it the highest one-day total amount of rain in June since 1990.
