PHOENIX — Temperatures will be trending 5 to 10 degrees above normal this week as a high pressure ridge building over the western United States. There will be an area of low pressure just to our west feeding additional cloud cover into Arizona with an extremely low chance of showers.
That area of low pressure will try to push some light showers into Arizona; however, any chance of rain will remain very low. If we see any rain, look for that to happen in western and northern Arizona on Monday and Tuesday.
While children are collecting their candy on Halloween evening, Valley temps will be in the low 80s to upper 70s.
There is some good news looming beyond our 7-day forecast; the ridge that will bring us a big warm up this coming week will be replaced with another deep trough. The temperature outlook is for an equal chance of above or below normal temperatures. That was the same outlook we saw in advance of our recent cold snap. That deep trough pattern is forecast to stick around for nearly a week.
