After record-breaking heat last week hitting 108 degrees in Phoenix, temperatures plummeted Sunday with a high of 74.

It was a 34 degree swing — the biggest three-day cool down in May the city has ever seen, according to the National Weather Service.

In Phoenix, three-day temperature drops higher than 20 degrees come few-and-far-between in May.

Since 1896, it’s only happened 24 times.

The last time the Valley saw a similar drop was in 2008 when temperatures dropped 30 degrees, from 108 to 78 between May 20 and May 22, according to NWS.
