Record your weekend setup across AZ!

PHOENIX – We’re in the midst of a historic heat wave, and it’s about to get even hotter this weekend.

We stay in ABC15 weather work mode As a reminder to take the necessary measures to keep you and your family safe in this extreme heat.

Heat is the number one weather-related killer. So, limit your time outside during the hottest part of the day and stay hydrated. Keep an eye on children and the elderly as they are most affected by this heat. Bring your pets inside, too.

The temperature in Phoenix has reached 110 degrees or more for the past 15 days in a row, and we have at least another week of incredibly high temperatures to get through.

The record for the most days in a row with highs at 110 degrees or more is 18, set in June of 1974. But we’ll likely break that record this year.

Phoenix could also set a record for the most days in a row with lows in the 90s. So far, the low temperature has been in the 90s for 5 mornings in a row. The record for consecutive lows in the 1990s is 7 days set in July 2020, August 2020, and August 2012.

A combination of hot daytime highs (well above 110 degrees across the valley) and warmer-than-normal nighttime lows (in the upper 80s to low 90s) will increase the risk of heat illness.

Excessive heat warnings For the Phoenix metro area and lower elevations throughout Arizona are now in effect through next Wednesday night.

Heat tips Also in effect in higher elevation areas and much of northern Arizona through Monday. Flagstaff could set new daily records this weekend with daytime highs approaching the mid-90s.

Here in the Valley, record highs and overnight lows are now at risk through most of next week. Daytime highs will range from 114 to 118 here in Phoenix with overnight lows mostly in the low 90s.

Nearly a month after the start of the monsoon, we are yet to witness any monsoon storms in the Valley.

Humidity is expected to increase next week, so stay tuned for updates on storm chances across Arizona.
