PHOENIX — High pressure is building in and sending temperatures soaring.

We could see our first triple digits of the year on Tuesday!

There's a good chance of hitting 100-degrees in Phoenix between 3 and 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

That would put us just two degrees shy of the record of 102 set back in 2020.

On average, our first 100-degree day of the year occurs around May 2nd. The earliest 100-degree day was on March 26, 1988.

Thankfully, these triple digits won't last long.

Temperatures will fall back into the 90s by midweek as high pressure moves east and low pressure passes to our north.

Breezy winds are in the forecast for much of the week, but winds will be strongest on Thursday as that area of low pressure passes by.

That's going to increase fire danger quite a bit across our state as conditions stay dry.
