PHOENIX -- Dry weather will be the theme for the next couple of weeks across Arizona.

Monsoonal moisture will also not be able to make it into the state through the middle of next week, so even thunderstorms in the mountains will be hard to come by.

In fact, the longer-range weather trends indicate dry weather will continue for the rest of June.

A series of low pressure systems that tracked through the western states north of Arizona and provided a few days of unseasonably cool temperatures will be replaced by a drier and warmer air mass.

Afternoon temperatures are expected to increase the remainder of the week and weekend, possibly hitting the 110-degree mark on some of the lower deserts by Saturday.

For the Valley Saturday, we’ll forecast 108 degrees at Sky Harbor International Airport.
