PHOENIX — Phoenix finally reached the century mark, hitting 100 degrees at 2:12 PM.

On average, our first 100-degree day of the year occurs in early May, so this is right on cue.

This is the latest Phoenix hit 100 since 2010!

As the next storm system approaches, it will get slightly cooler and windy all across Arizona.

Wind Advisories have been issued across northern Arizona through tomorrow. Watch out for gusts near 60 mph along the I-40 corridor.

Conditions are looking dry, so fire danger will be increasing too. Fire Weather Warnings are now in effect across northern Arizona.

That storm system will keep breezy to windy conditions in our forecast through the middle of next week as temperatures drop.

Valley highs will fall into the mid-90s on Sunday and into the 80s toward the middle of next week.
