PHOENIX — High pressure is building in and heating things up again!
Phoenix hit 90 degrees Thursday afternoon and will likely do it again Friday and Saturday.
That puts us several degrees above the average of 82 for this time of year, but it's not the latest we've ever seen 90-degree temperatures.
Just last year we hit 90 degrees on November 17th, marking the latest 90-degree day ever in Phoenix.
Temperatures will drop a bit by Sunday with most Valley spots in the upper 80s.
Thankfully, overnight lows will stay cool. Across the Valley, we'll drop into the upper 50s to low 60s around sunrise each morning.
A weak storm system will move in from the west early next week, bringing more clouds and cooler temperatures our way.
We could see a few spotty showers across northern Arizona as it tracks through on Tuesday evening, but our Valley forecast will stay dry.
Expect highs back in the low 80s here in the Valley by the middle of next week.
2021 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 5.58" (-0.40" from average)
