PHOENIX — Strong high pressure is still the boss Thursday, leading to another excessive heat warned day with statewide temperatures that are around ten degrees above average.
For Phoenix, the high temp is expected to crack 110 degrees for the fourth time this year already.
An approaching low-pressure system will help bust up this balmy blitz as we head into the weekend. This will have winds increasing Friday, with the potential for thunderstorms and showers in northern and eastern Arizona. There’s a small chance for storms in the Valley and deserts.
Below-average temperatures will follow suit on Saturday and into next week.
