You had to get out early today to enjoy temperatures in the upper 70's to the lower 80's. Today's high will climb to 109 degrees, that is 10 degrees above our average.
The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning through Sunday in Phoenix, meaning the risk for heat-related illness is increase.
Friday's high will be 111 degrees, that is very close to the record of 112 set back in 1910. Unfortunately the weekend will be just as hot, with a high of 110 both Saturday and Sunday.
Good news, by Tuesday we will see bit of a break with the heat. Temperatures will fall to around 104 by Wednesday. That is still above average, but at least we are not near record territory.
The cooler weather is associated with a slow moving low that will also increase moisture in the atmosphere. We could even see some thunderstorms in Southern Gila County next week.
Stay cool and be careful.
