Yet another excessive heat alert this weekend

Phoenix is on track to reset the record for the most 110-degree days in a year.

PHOENIX — Elevated fire danger will still be in the picture Friday due to gusty southwest winds speeding up across the state and an extra shot of dry air. 

Then over the weekend as winds simmer down, the attention will turn back over to rising temperatures.

An excessive heat watch has been put in place for Sunday and Monday for parts of south-central Arizona, including the Phoenix metro, and lower elevations of Gila County. Afternoon temperatures will be closer to records than normals, landing in the 105-113 range.

Over the weekend, 2020 will likely be going down as having the most 110-degree days on record in Phoenix. The current standing record is 33 days which was set in 2011.

Though moisture is limited, it is possible each day for monsoon storms to ignite in an isolated to scattered fashion in the White Mountains and southeastern Arizona.

FRIDAY: 83/109 mostly sunny

SATURDAY: 84/111 mostly sunny

SUNDAY: 85/112 sunny

MONDAY: 86/112 sunny

TUESDAY: 86/110 sunny

WEDNESDAY: 86/111 sunny
