Synopsis:
Hot temperatures will continue to be the focus today and tomorrow before a welcomed cool down arrives over the upcoming holiday weekend. In the near term, high pressure will remain in place across the Desert Southwest promoting very dry conditions and afternoon temperatures well into the triple digits across the lower deserts. Moving ahead, a large trough will dig south into the lower Great Basin Saturday and linger into early next week. This system will lead to increased breezes/windy conditions Saturday and Sunday. We’ll also see a noticeable drop in temperatures as daily highs fall back into the 90s by Sunday and low 90s for Memorial Day. Overall, we should have wonderful weather to get out and enjoy all that AZ has to offer over the holiday weekend. 

For today plan clear and sunny skies. Daytime temperatures will easily warm into the 103˚F-106˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range with localized gusts around 15mph. Overnight lows will only dip into the mid 70s around the urban corridor partly cloudy skies and light winds.

For tomorrow plan on clear skies during the morning hours before passing high clouds into the afternoon/evening. Afternoon highs will again climb into the 103˚F-106˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range with afternoon/evening gusts around 15-20mph. As covered above, temperatures will trend down over the weekend. Highs on Saturday will settle around the 100˚F mark before dipping into the mid to upper 90s on Sunday. We expect breezy to windy conditions both afternoons along with a potential for localized blowing dust. Memorial Day should be quite mild with highs limited to the low 90s, easing winds, and generally quiet weather.
