Hotter and even drier as we head toward the holiday weekend

PHOENIX - Drier air continues to move in, keeping our forecast sunny and dry across the state all the way through Labor Day weekend.

As we dry out, temperatures will soar.

We hit 106 in Phoenix today and will climb to 108 on Friday.

Our heat peaks Saturday with a high of 109 in Phoenix before temperatures drop a few degrees Sunday and Monday to wrap up the Labor Day weekend.

By the start of next week, monsoon moisture begins to creep back into southeast Arizona bringing slight chances for isolated storms to the forecast down there.

In the Valley, our break from the monsoon continues for much, if not all, of next week with sunny and dry conditions prevailing.

Longer range models are hinting at a chance for more moisture and a chance for Valley storms by next Friday, but it's too soon to tell. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
