It was 1350º, 1665º, 2960º, and 1270º in the greater Phoenix area Tuesday, according to Arizona’s Fox 10 News weather map. A consequence of global warming? More like a really unfortunate, but hilarious, technical glitch.

FOX 10 Arizona Morning’s weatherman Cory McCloskey just rolled with it: “1270 in Ahwatukee. Now, I’m not authorized to evacuate Ahwatukee, but this temperature seems pretty high…Frankly, Wickenburg [2385] is a total loss…Surprise is starting to heat up as well at 1300 degrees…Again, I’m not your dad, but I would get out while you still can.”
