PHOENIX — PHOENIX — We're turning up the heat as the 80s return to the Valley and look to stick around for at least the next week.
High pressure is moving in from the west, slowly building temperatures into the mid to upper 80s by the middle of next week.
Breezes in northern and northwestern parts of Arizona will ramp up too. We could see gusts around 35 mph Sunday and Monday.
A disturbance moves in Wednesday bringing a slight chance of rain to northern Arizona and the Four Corners area. That will help keep Valley temperatures below 90, too, though we'll stay dry.
Combine the winds and warmer temperatures and the pollen count in the Valley is shooting up and will stay high for the next several days with main allergens being mulberry, ash, and juniper.
2021 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 5.58" (-1.01" from average)
