Weather Outlook

Date & Time: 02/07/2023 @ 9:45 AM MST

Forecaster: Henz, D.
 
Synopsis: It’s going to be a busy finish to the week across the Phoenix Valley with the Super Bowl and Waste Management Open in town. As discussed in previous Outlooks, AZ will continue to show off it’s amazing winter weather to the rest of the Country courtesy of high pressure building across the Desert Southwest. Daily high temperatures will return to the low 70s in the near term before seeing a jump into the mid to upper 70s into the start of the weekend. It’s also worth noting breezy to windy conditions are expected for most of Thursday and Friday to go along with generally dry conditions. Looking ahead, a weak disturbance is forecast to move across the region late Saturday into Monday, though at this point we’re only expecting a modest cool down, passing clouds, and perhaps some light showers mainly across the higher terrain areas north and east of the Valley. Overall, get ready to head out and enjoy all the festivities the Valley has to offer!

For today plan on mainly sunny skies with a few passing cirrus through the afternoon. Daytime temperatures will climb into the 68˚F-70˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will generally hover in the 5-10mph range before with localized gusts around 15mph into the afternoon/evening. Overnight lows will dip into the mid 40s around the urban corridor under clear skies and light winds.

For tomorrow plan on continuing sunny conditions across the region. Afternoon highs will quickly warm into the 70˚F-72˚F range around the Valley. North/northeast winds will be breezy in the 8-16mph range with gusts reaching the 20-30mph range especially across our foothills and higher terrain areas north/east of Phoenix. Additional warming will arrive on Friday and Saturday with highs seeing a jump into the mid to upper 70s across the lower deserts. Windy conditions will continue on Friday before easing into Saturday. We’ll also likely see an uptick in passing high clouds early in the weekend ahead of the weak disturbance slated to arrive on Sunday. We’ll have additional details on this in tomorrow’s extended Outlook.
