Today: A good environment today for heavy mountain storms, but here on the lower deserts we’ll just have to put up with the heat and moisture. We could see some storms sneak into the northern and eastern zones today, but that will be about it. Meanwhile, temperatures begin to climb toward this weekend’s predicted high values. Today we’ll see 101-103 across the northern zones and 105-107 in places like Mesa, Buckeye and Gila Bend. West breezes will range from 10-15 mph in most zones. Overnight lows will range from the low 80s in the north to the middle 80s in the City Center.
Tomorrow: Rain chances will be bump up into the measureable category for the northern and eastern zones. Temperatures change very little if at all, both for the afternoon and overnight.
Saturday: Back to little or no chance of rain. Temperatures don’t change much, but the air should dry a bit at the surface as high pressure begins to make its way overhead.
