PHOENIX — High pressure over the desert southwest remains put for Monday and will keep temperatures warm and above normal.
Expect highs in the upper 80s Monday and then a gradual cool down begins on Tuesday.
Relief is in sight for our warmer daytime highs as the ridge of high pressure will begin to break down on Tuesday, allowing for a series of storm systems to sweep through the region.
These systems won't bring any rain to our state but we will see an increase in cloudiness, breezy to gusty winds, and much cooler temperatures. By Tuesday the Valley will be in the low 80s and drop to the 70s by Thursday.
Early mornings are staying cool and chilly with lows in the 50s in the Valley — and up north in the 20s & 30s. Brrrrrr!
2021 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 5.58" (-0.57" from average)
