PHOENIX — Dry, sunny and warm for our long holiday weekend in Arizona.
It will stay pretty windy along the Colorado River Valley for another day or two but in the valley our winds will calm by Friday.
Low pressure system passing through Northern Mexico will bring a few showers into Southeastern Arizona but nothing expected to make it into the valley.
Temperatures will be a bit warmer by Friday with Valley highs in the upper 70s.
As high pressure returns, look for sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s through the weekend and no chance for showers.
Then, we'll be back in the low 80s toward the middle of next week. That will put us more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
2021 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 5.58" (-0.79" from average)
Valley Average (Phoenix Rainfall Index): 7.16"
