HOT in the Valley...even by July standards!
Excessive heat warning is in effect from the Phoenix area west to the Colorado River as afternoon highs warm to between 110-115°.
Compounding the heat issue is the lack of overnight cooling, with another record warm morning low (92°) on Wednesday in Phoenix.
With this break in the storm action, here is an update on how rainy the 2014 monsoon has been so far:
Deer Valley: 1.02"
Apache Junction: .75"
Litchfield Park: .83"
Phoenix (Sky Harbor): .06"
Normal rain for Phoenix for the monsoon so far is .97"
So when will those monsoon storms return?
A pattern more favorable for storms in the Valley appears to be re-establishing itself starting on Friday and really kicking in for the weekend. We'll just have to wait for it...
