Weather Outlook

Date & Time: 6/8/2023 @ 8:15 AM MST

Forecaster: Malloy, J.

Forecast trends are holding well. The continued presence of cooler cyclonic flow aloft in our part of the country translates to pleasant temps at the surface for June standards (upper 90s to low 100s across the lower deserts). Outside of AZ, much of the Intermountain West has experienced daily isolated to scattered thundershowers under the prevailing weather pattern. Moisture profiles closer to home this week, though, have not been conducive to introduce a rain threat. Upper-level low pressure temporarily weakens heading into Saturday before another low pressure trough strengthens near SoCal later during the weekend. Temperatures respond with a slight warming trend only to cooldown a handful of degrees starting Sunday back into the mid-90s for Phoenix. Dry and breezier afternoon/evening winds are likely Saturday through Monday.

Today: Phoenix cooled down to the low 70s, while rural and foothill elevation locations of the County were around 10 degrees cooler. Mid to upper-90s for maximums are expected in the urbanized zones. Mostly sunny skies early this morning in the Valley become partly cloudy later this afternoon and evening. There will be the usual daytime winds of 5-20 mph from the south and west. 

Friday: Partly cloudy early becoming sunnier. Overall, high temps are a few degrees warmer paired with typical light afternoon south and west breezes (5-20 mph).

Saturday: Likely the warmest day of the forecast period. Low 100s are possible for Phoenix. Afternoon and evening southwesterly winds become breezier (15-25 mph, higher gusts possible) due to the aforementioned developing SoCal low pressure.
