PHOENIX — Phoenix could hit the triple digits for the first time this year as we head into the weekend.
On average, our first 100-degree day of the year occurs in early May, so this is right on cue.
If we hit it at Sky Harbor on Saturday, that would mark the latest first 100-degree day since 2010!
As the next storm system approaches, it will get windy all across Arizona this weekend.
Wind Advisories have been issued across northern Arizona on Saturday. Watch out for gusts near 50 mph along the I-40 corridor.
Conditions are looking dry, so fire danger will be increasing too. Fire Weather Warnings are now in effect Saturday and Sunday 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, low 90s Monday and Tuesday, and into the 80s toward the middle of next week.
2022 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 0.55" (-2.26" from average)
Valley Average (Phoenix Rainfall Index): 0.71"
