Hot for now but a return to calm is on the way
PHOENIX – Dry weekend even with all those clouds. Temperatures stay about five degrees above normal for a few more days before a chill sets in.
Wind gusts in northern Arizona on Sunday are expected. A Wind Notice was issued for the Upper Colorado River Valley from 11 p.m. this evening through 7 p.m. Sunday. Gusts in this area could reach 50 mph.
By Monday the winds will pick up and there will be breezes here in the valley and in southeastern Arizona.
Then a thunderstorm system will arrive from the west on Tuesday and Wednesday. This time we even got to see some rain and snow in parts of Arizona!
The odds are slim (at 10 to 20 percent for Valley and 20 to 30 percent for N, NE AZ), but they will go into effect Tuesday, increase a bit Wednesday, and may even linger until Thanksgiving morning. .
The cooler air coming in will send peaks in the 70s plummeting across the valley just in time for the holidays as well.
Accumulated precipitation 2021:
Official Sky Harbor precipitation: 5.58 “(-0.68” from average)
Valley average (Phoenix rain index): 7.02 “
