Phoenix weather: Hottest day of the year, 112 degrees

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The high at Sky Harbor Airport on Monday was 112 degrees, the hottest day so far in 2012.

Excessive Heat warnings that were issued for Monday will likely be back later in the week. 

We get a bit of a break from the heat on Tuesday as slightly cooler air crosses Ariz. Expect a Valley high of around 107.

We're also seeing the first signs that some monsoonal moisture may make it's way toward metro Phoenix by late in the weekend and early next week.

We could actually see some build-ups around town but at this point, any forecast mentioning a chance for thunderstorms is premature.
