We did it! Phoenix hit 100 degrees Wednesday afternoon. It officially happened at 2:15 p.m. at Sky Harbor Airport. The triple digits actually came later than last year. Our first 100-degree day in 2020 came on April 26.
We had a nice start to our morning with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s, but a ridge of high pressure really warmed things up this afternoon. This ridge will hold strong through Thursday. In fact, we could see another triple-digit day tomorrow.
Temperatures will start to cool down starting on Friday, as a low passes to the north of us. This low will bring breezy conditions on Friday afternoon and we will also see temperatures getting closer to our average this weekend.
Our average high this time of year is 91 degrees. Mother's Day should be nice with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the lower-to-mid 90s.
Next week we will start out in the lower-to-mid 90s and we should stay below 100 through next Wednesday.
