Good Thursday morning! Ready for more triple-digit heat?
On Wednesday, we saw our first 100-degree high temperature of 2021. It officially happened at 2:15 p.m. at Sky Harbor International Airport. The triple digits actually came later than last year. Our first 100-degree day in 2020 came on April 26. On average, we see our first triple digits around May 2.
We'll have a nice start to our morning today with lows in the 60s, but a ridge of high pressure really warms things up this afternoon. We're likely to climb to around 101 degrees today, which is a full 10 degrees above average for this time of year in Phoenix.
Temperatures will start to cool down a bit Friday, as a low passes to the north of us. This low will bring breezy conditions on Friday afternoon and temperatures will fall to the mid-90s over the weekend ahead.
Mother's Day should be nice with plenty of sunshine and afternoon temperatures in the low-to-mid 90s.
Next week we will start out in the low-to-mid 90s but it looks likely we'll see another warm-up to triple digits to end next week. No rain is likely for the next seven days.
I've got your full forecast all morning on "Good Morning Arizona" until 10 a.m.
