PHOENIX -- After a weekend of temperatures in the mid-90s across the Valley, triple digits are not far behind.

A series of cool and weak low pressure systems are moving just to the north of Arizona through Monday, keeping most Valley communities in the upper 90s.

By Tuesday, our northwesterly flow shifts into a westerly flow of air, creating a warming trend across our area. We’re expecting a high of 100 as early as Tuesday in the Valley, with the low 100s continuing on through possibly Friday. Overnight low temperatures will remain in the low 70s. A normal high of this time of year in Phoenix is 96.

Light breezes will also pick up during the afternoon hours each day. Skies will be clear to mostly clear.

By next weekend, an area of low pressure will move into the Pacific Northwest and force our winds to kick up across the entire state. Temperatures should also bump back down to the upper 90s.

Unfortunately, there’s no rain in our forecast to clear out the dust or the pollen in the air that’s responsible for making those with allergies suffer.
