While the East Coast was dealing with a blizzard, Arizona was getting unnaturally hot, according toFOX 10 Phoenix.

An malfunction on their weather map made it appear as if the temperatures were going to be in the thousands this week, but meteorologist Cory McCloskey handled it like a pro.

“Now I’m not authorized to evacuate Ahwatukee,” he said of a city reported to be 1270 degrees, “But this temperature seems pretty high.”

It’s also supposed to be a sweltering 2960 degrees in Cave Creek and 2385 in Wickenburg.

“I think steel boils at this temperature,” he said. “So Cave Creek… there’s probably nothing left up there. So don’t even bother looting up there.”

Fox 10 wrote about the error on their Facebook page:

“In the world of live news sometimes technology just doesn’t cooperate,” they said. “That’s why it’s important to have smart people who can handle the heat.”

This photo was taken by passing photographer, Saber Miresmailli, who then took to the internet to find the lovely couple.  Responses have been tremendous and a Twitter user came forward claiming to know the couple.  The photographer then made a statement on his Facebook page saying that, until they come home from their honeymoon and claim the picture, their identities are unconfirmed. 

Finally, they have returned from their honeymoon and even did an interview with ITV News London.  They say they were shocked at the attention they got and basically agree that it's a very nice picture.
