Phoenix's all-time heaviest rainfall for the fifth of June came yesterday. It wasn't much, 0.03in, but that was enough to break the previous record of 0.00in, which was set whenever they started keeping records, and tied every year since.
The National Weather Service said Friday the 0.03 inch of rain recorded at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport by 4 p.m. was the largest amount for June 5.
Meteorologist Chris Kuhlman said that it had never officially rained in the desert city on this date.
"So far we had not anticipated that June would be a wet month, it almost never rains in the month of June in Phoenix," Kuhlman said.
