We've hit a new record - 34 days of temperatures of 110 or greater in Phoenix. This streak set a record for the most days in a year of 110 degrees or hotter. The previous record dates back to 1895!

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect through Monday evening for the Valley and portions of Gila County.

High pressure is situated across the Southern Plains, and a trough off the coast of central California is importing a dry southwest flow of air into the state.

The result is very minimal storm activity and afternoon highs running about five to ten degrees above average for this time of the year.

The "coolest" day of the week will be Tuesday, with a forecast high in Phoenix of 110.

For the high country, places like Flagstaff will experience highs near 90 degrees, with triple-digit heat for the lower elevations like Sedona.

No substantial rain is expected in our state over the next seven days.

Fire danger remains elevated, thanks to our dry fuels, low relative humidity, hot temperatures, and afternoon breezes.
