Synopsis: The forecast for the remainder of the week is locked in with downward trending temperatures, breezy to windy periods, and dry conditions. The main upper-level storm track will continue to remain north of AZ with troughing over the western US. Two more weak disturbances will sag south into the lower Great Basin through Sunday helping to keep daily temperatures (especially after today) in the 90s. Breezy to windy conditions will also be common especially across the higher terrain areas each afternoon/evening. Overall, plan on a pretty nice weekend with quiet weather and plenty of sun. No major warming trends are in the extended forecast until at least the middle of next week.
Plan on sunny skies today with a few passing high clouds into this evening/tonight. Daytime temperatures will peak in the 97˚F-100˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range this morning before breezier conditions this afternoon (gusts 15-25mph). Overnight lows will dip into the low 70s around the urban corridor with outlying communities reaching the upper 60s.
