Phoenix Temperatures Could Reach Triple Digits This Week

For the first time in 2018, we could experience triple digit highs in the Valley this week. James Sawtelle is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Phoenix. He said we’ll see a continued warming trend that began over the weekend.

"On Tuesday, we’re going for a high of 98 and on Wednesday 99," Sawtelle said. "That’s so close to 100 that you can’t rule it out.”

Sawtelle said it will get breezy and windy on Thursday and the temperatures will start to cool back down.
