PHOENIX — Tuesday will be the final day under the 7-day stretch of the excessive heat warning. It will mark the 27th day under an excessive heat warning this year.
Smoke pulled in from California’s Apple Fire may still linger in the skies on Tuesday.
Monsoon storms will be minimal and limited to the White Mountains and southeastern Arizona. Storm activity will increase later in the workweek but will still favor the eastern section of our state.
A positive spin on the drier air for the Valley is it will yield lower and more comfortable overnight temperatures into the lower 80s by the end of the workweek.
A fire weather watch was also posted for portions of northwestern Arizona for Wednesday and Thursday.
That's due to incoming gusty, south to southwest winds near 35 mph with relative humidity levels as low as 4-9%. Any fires that spark will likely spread rapidly.
TUESDAY: 90/112 mostly sunny, excessive heat warning
WEDNESDAY: 87/108 mostly sunny
THURSDAY: 85/107 mostly sunny
FRIDAY: 85/108 mostly sunny
SATURDAY: 85/109 mostly sunny
SUNDAY: 84/111 sunny
MONDAY: 85/110 sunny
