PHOENIX — It's a warm start to the week in the Valley, and it'll be even hotter to end it!
Valley highs will reach the low 90s again tomorrow, before they soar to the highest levels of the year so far later this week!
As winds back off Thursday and Friday, ozone pollution will build up in the Valley. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued Ozone High Pollution Watches for those days that could be upgraded to Advisories as we get closer.
High pressure will build in by the end of the week heating things up across our state.
Here in the Valley, we'll make another run towards the triple digits and could see our first 100s in Phoenix by Friday or Saturday.
Those 100s will be short lived this time around, though. Another storm system is set to approach our state ahead of next week and it will bring another round of strong winds and a drop in temperatures. We could see Valley highs fall back into the 80s by next Monday.
2022 Rainfall totals:
