PHOENIX -- A ridge of high pressure over the southwestern area of the U.S. is resulting in unseasonably warm, if not hot, conditions over much of Arizona. Also, showers and thunderstorms have been essentially absent on Monday, but could return slowly late week to eastern and southeast Arizona.
In the meantime, remember the old DOS computer code "WYSIWYG?" It's roughly pronounced Wizzy-Wig. It means: What you see is what you get. And that's kind of our forecast this week around Arizona. What we're seeing today is what we're going to get tomorrow, etc.
Since the start of the month, the lowest high temperature has been 104 degrees. The hottest? 111. And our longer-range forecast models suggest we're going to stay in that range for the next 10 days.
