Phoenix weather: Warm Wednesday forecastPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- A sunny and slightly warmer day is on tap for the Valley. We will warm to about 100 degrees by lunchtime and a high of 107 degrees is expected this afternoon.
Winds will be out of the south this afternoon between 5 and 15 mph. We hit 105 degrees yesterday, and 106 is the average high for today's date.
The record for today is 120 degrees, set back on June 25, 1990. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the hottest day ever recorded in Phoenix. The mercury rose to 122 degrees on June 26th, 1990.
A weak weather disturbance is forecast to pass through our region tomorrow, bringing a few clouds and slightly stronger winds. Valley winds are expected up to 15 mph and should be a bit stronger in the high country with the strongest winds expected across northwestern parts of the state.
Friday should be a few degrees cooler at 105 degrees before we begin a warmup this weekend that brings us back to the 110-degree category near the start of next week.
Monsoon moisture still looks like a possibility by the middle to late part of next week and near the 4th of July holiday.
