Synopsis: Temperatures will begin to trend hotter starting Monday and another bout of excessive heat is in the cards through most of the upcoming work week. Looking at the big picture, the Monsoon ridge will finally build back north out of Mexico into the west TX area before shifting farther west into mid-week. Daily high temperatures will return to the 110°F mark on Monday before hovering in the 112°F-115°F range through Thursday. Looking further ahead, it appears the Monsoon might make a welcomed return to AZ next weekend, but we’re still a ways off to comment further. Stay Tuned!

For tomorrow plan on clear and sunny skies across the region. Daytime highs will warm into the 109°F-111°F range around the Valley with dry conditions persisting.
