Phoenix is just as much a candidate for interesting weather as anywhere this time of year. Let’s see what transpires today.
At 951AM, PT, Phoenix was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 73 degrees. After last weeks trough dug all the way into the desert southwest, the upper level flow has broken down. Still, the construct of an upper level trough is in place, and a very strong jet streak is angling into the Pacific Northwest, and will, to some degree, follow the framework already established, especially with the strength of the ridge in the east.
Flow will get too contorted to work its way into Phoenix effectively. There will be a brief cool down the next couple of days, but it will be almost imperceptible, and likely not accompanied by any rain, before the jet is forced into a more laminar flow north of Phoenix. All told, it doesn’t look like too bad a forecast for Phoenix, but perhaps a little warm.
