Tag Archives: Excessive Heat Warning

Forecast for Friday, July 7, 2017

The Monsoon is coming!  The Monsoon is coming!  Increasing moisture will lead to scattered storms across the area starting this weekend and continuing into next week.  We are so ready!  High pressure still large and in charge today with an EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING in effect until 7:00 p.m. so be warned, the heat will be excessive.  Did I mention scattered storms in the forecast starting this weekend?!

Sunny and hot today with a high near the record of 110.

A storm or two possible this evening, hopefully near you, and a low in the low 80s.

Partly cloudy tomorrow with a slight chance of a storm and a high near 107.  Scattered storms possible tomorrow evening into next week.  104ish Sunday.  Near 102 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Forecast for Thursday, July 6, 2017

An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING is in effect from Noon today until 7:00 tomorrow night.  Be warned, the heat will be excessive.  Today’s record high is 109 and tomorrow’s is 110 so we’ll be in the ball park.  Thankfully we should see more moisture and a “cooling” trend starting this weekend.  Outflow from storms in Sonora, Mexico will give us that aforementioned more moisture to work with and maybe an actual start to Monsoon 2017!  Stay tuned.

Mostly sunny and hot today with a high near 110.

Partly cloudy tonight with a low near 80.

Near 110 tomorrow with a chance for evening storms.  Chance for storms Saturday through Wednesday with highs near 105, 103, 104, 104 and 102 respectively.

Forecast for Sunday, June 25, 2017

Outflow winds from storms to our east have brought us clouds and moisture to start the day.  As a result we are off to a warmer than the last few days start to the day.  Thanx to the moisture increase we are looking at isolated to scattered storms this afternoon and evening!  Expect gusty winds near storms but a few folks will also get a nice shower, hopefully near you.  Today is also our last day of the EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING that has been in effect all week.  Tedious and buh bye.  Moisture lingers into tomorrow and then our epic high pressure retreats south as a couple of systems move through the Great Basin.  That will put us in a dry westerly flow drying us out some most of this week and also “cooling” us to near normal highs for this time of year.  Tropical Storm Dora will move to near the tip of the Baja Peninsula.  That moisture will move into Mexico priming the pump for the start of Monsoon 2017 for reals!  Stay tuned!

Partly cloudy today with a chance for afternoon storms and a high near 111.

Partly cloudy tonight with scattered storms before midnight and a low near 80.

Mostly sunny tomorrow with isolated afternoon storms and a high near 107.  Sunny near 107 Tuesday.  104 Wednesday.  103 Thursday.  105 Friday.  Chance for storms Saturday 106.

Forecast for Saturday, June 24, 2017

Today’s record is 113 and we’ll be close!  Drier air has moved in with high pressure restrengthening over our heads means another hot day.  EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING fixin’ to come to and end tomorrow night and good riddance!  Moisture on the increase tomorrow into Monday with a few storms about, hopefully one or two near you.  Then high pressure weakening and moving off giving way to a westerly flow that will dry us out and knock our temperatures closer to average for this time of year (102).  Looks like a surge of moisture after next weekend.  Stay tuned!

Mostly sunny and hot today with a high near 112.

Partly cloudy tonight with a low in the low 80s.

A chance for afternoon and evening storms tomorrow with a high near 110ish anyone?  Chance for storms Monday 107.  Slight chance for storms Tuesday 106.  Slight chance for storms Wednesday 104.  Sunny Thursday 102.  104 Friday.

Forecast for Friday, June 23, 2017

High pressure losing a little more steam today but still rather hot with an EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING in effect through Sunday.  High pressure restrengthens this weekend for hotter highs back near 110, but moisture on the increase as well.  Monsoon 2017 still warming up so we won’t be in the deep moisture for locally heavy rain or anything like that.  More like a chance for storms with more gusty winds and lightning than rain.  Someone’s is gonna get rained on.  Might as well be you!  Thunderstorm chances continue through Wednesday and we “cool” as we go.  Drier by the end of next week.  Enjoy!

Sunny today with a high near 108.

Mostly clear tonight with a low near 82.

Forecast for Wednesday, June 21, 2017

One more day of record heat and then we “cool” a bit as we head towards the weekend.  You know.  If you can call 108 and 110 “cooling”, but considering yesterday was 116 I guess we can!  The EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING has been extended through Sunday, but that should be the extent of it.  Some moisture still hanging around today but it looks like the best chance of a few storms will be to our east.  We may get some of the gusty outflow winds this evening.  Moisture on the increase next week and temperatures cooling some more.  Looks like Monsoon 2017 is getting warmed up!

Forecast for Tuesday, June 20, 2017

115 yesterday tied the record high set last year.  EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING still in effect through Saturday evening.  Today looks very interesting.  Very hot and very interesting.  First we have leftover clouds (mmm leftovers) from yesterday’s shower activity to our east along with an increase in moisture.  As a result of the cloud cover overnight we are starting the day at a balmy 88 – 90 degrees.  Yikes!  It’s not like we need a head start on this afternoon’s expected record high of 114.  A few thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening with that moisture increase.  Any storms will have more wind and lightning than rain, but someone could get a nice shower.  Otherwise gusty winds near storms and lightning that could cause fires.  Good times.  The heat continues tomorrow near 114 and another record.  Then some hope in sight.  111ish Thursday.  Only 110 Friday!  111 Saturday.  Chance for storms Sunday 110.  Chance for storms Monday 108.

Today’s forecast – 114, Record – 112
Tomorrow – 114, Record – 112
Thursday – 111, Record – 114

Forecast for Monday, June 19, 2017

108 yesterday and our EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING continues, now in effect through Saturday.  Yikes!  Good news though.  Kinda.  Moisture on the increase for tomorrow so instead of 116 we’ll shoot for 115.  Also a few thunderstorms will be possible especially tomorrow evening.  Unfortunately there won’t be that much moisture so the storms will have more lightning and gusty winds than rain.  Might start a fire or two and did I mention gusty winds near storms.  Yeah, that will probably be a thing.  Typical early Monsoon storms.  Be cool!  Here are the specifics:

Sunny and hot today with a high near 114.

Clear skies tonight with a low in the low 80s.

Partly cloudy tomorrow with an isolated storm or two possible in the afternoon and evening.  Gusty winds near storms with a high near 115.

Sunny Wednesday 114ish.  112 Thursday.  110 Friday.  111 Saturday.
