Phoenix weather: A hot week ahead

by Meteorologist Royal Norman

Updated yesterday at 6:24 PM

PHOENIX -- The hottest temperatures of the year are in the forecast for the Phoenix metro area this week. The hottest days should be Wednesday and Thursday, when we are forecasting high temperatures at Sky Harbor Airport of 114 degrees.

Some locations around the Valley will crack the 115 degree mark this week as a strong ridge of high pressure clamps down on the weather around Arizona.

Strong high pressure will build across the desert southwest resulting in drier conditions and a steady warming trend. The hottest temperatures of the summer are expected Wednesday and Thursday with readings in the lower deserts likely falling into a 110-115 degree range.

Thunderstorms will generally remain relegated to the higher terrain of eastern Arizona through at least Wednesday. An increase in moisture will bring higher rain chances to the area late in the week and into the weekend.

The hottest temperatures of the summer are expected Wednesday and Thursday. However, that could change as several models suggest thunderstorm outflow and moisture surging westward through Arizona as early as Wednesday evening. That could keep temperatures from getting quite as hot as forecast.
