MOST ACCURATE FORECAST: Cranking up the heat!

PHOENIX — Get ready for our first big heat wave next week as we could see the first 110-degree days of the year!

We'll end the weekend in the low 100s with evening breezes returning around 10-15 mph. Across northern Arizona some areas could still gusts around 25 mph throughout the day.

Those winds have helped mix our air keeping ozone pollution levels lower. However, we could see pollution climb back to unhealthy levels early next week. An Ozone High Pollution Watch has been issued for Monday and Tuesday.

High pressure will gradually shift toward our state next week, and that's going to send temperatures soaring to potentially dangerous levels.

Highs look to top out at or above 110 by Thursday through next weekend!

On average, we see our first day of temperatures at 110 degrees or higher on June 11th. So it wouldn't be unusual to see temperatures that high at this point in the year.

There's also a chance of dry thunderstorms possible northeast of Phoenix, in Gila County and the foothills of the Tonto National Forest.

Stay tuned for updates on the impending heat as we get closer.
