PHOENIX -- After a scorching weekend across the deserts of Arizona, the new week is off to a warm start.  Although the weekend's Excessive Heat Warning has been allowed to expire, temperatures will only fall off a couple of degrees from the record highs we saw over the last few afternoons. 

Look for partly sunny skies today and a Valley high near 109 degrees. 

Tomorrow, we'll top out near 110 degrees and 111 degrees is in the forecast for Wednesday. 

After that, temperatures should begin to moderate a bit for the second half of the week. 

Look for a 20 percent chance for storms in the Valley today and tomorrow, with a better chance in the high country.
