PHOENIX — For the next several days, temperatures will sizzle in the Valley leading to near record highs this weekend!
High temperatures will end up around 104 to 105 in the Valley through Wednesday, but we'll see a big warm-up by the weekend.
Valley highs will soar to between 109 and 112 Friday and this weekend as high pressure moves in. This would be the first time the Valley reaches 110 or greater in nearly three weeks thanks to the active monsoon season.
Morning lows will get warmer too, only cooling into the mid to upper 80s by the end of the week. So we won't get much relief from the heat overnight.
We're also keeping a close eye on our air quality.
Ozone levels will climb again and an Ozone High Pollution Watch has been issued for Thursday and Friday.
2022 Rainfall totals:
