Hotter and drier around Arizona as Fall begins

PHOENIX - Fall is here, but it's not going to feel like it just yet.

High pressure is bringing triple digit heat, keeping us several degrees above normal for the next few days.

Showers and thunderstorms will be confined to the White Mountains and far southeastern Arizona on Tuesday as dry air takes over the rest of the state.

By the end of the week, our first fall storm system approaches from the northwest bringing cooler air and rain chances back to our state.

The Valley is looking at a drop to the low to mid 90s this weekend with shower and thunderstorm chances up to 30 percent by Saturday.
