Phoenix weather: Stable weather patternPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- We’re looking at quiet weather through the weekend, with only a slight chance for thunderstorms developing in the mountains of the state.
Even with a gradual increase in humidity, we don’t expect any rain through the weekend.
Temperatures are also going to be about average for this time of year, with highs in the range of 100-104. Overnight lows will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Early next week, some of the moisture from Hurricane Odile will make its way into Arizona and increase our chances for monsoon activity. However, it’s not expected to be as big of a push of moisture as we saw earlier this week with the decay of Hurricane Norbert.
By the way, the National Weather Service has revised the record rainfall amount from Monday from 3.29 inches to 3.30 inches of rain. They found a computer glitch and with their backup procedures were able to reconstruct that hundredth of an inch of rain that went missing.
While that is the record for a single day in Phoenix, the record for a 24-hour period in Phoenix is a whopping 4.98 inches of rain, which fell on July 2-3 in 1911.
