More excessive heat with highs around 110 this week

The mercury is set to reach 110 by Wednesday.

PHOENIX — Temperatures will start to trend upward this week. Excessive heat watches are in place for the Valley and southern Arizona on Wednesday and Thursday when the mercury hovers near 110.

The High Country will see the mercury in the 80s and 90s this week along with the chance of isolated T-storms each afternoon through Friday.  This will be primarily for the eastern portion of the High Country, the Plateau and the Rim. 

Those isolated thunderstorms are expected to produce wind gusts that will stir up the dust once again. There is a chance some of those wind gusts could reach the Valley, especially the eastern part of the Valley.

Our greatest chance for rain will come on Friday followed by clearing skies and cooler temperatures for the weekend.

Just a reminder, we’re only 14 days away from the start of Monsoon 2020.
