Sizzling heat will be felt around Phoenix, Arizona today (Friday) and Saturday. The mercury will climb well above the century point and approach 110. Residents are reminded to stay hydrated and reduce time outdoors in the sunshine.
Excessive Heat Warnings are in effect into Saturday for the Phoenix metro area. A strong ridge of high pressure sitting over the Four Corners is bringing the hot temperatures to the Southwest.
Temperatures will hit 105 to 110 from Phoenix to Yuma into Saturday. The high pressure center will weaken slightly into the beginning of next week. High temperatures will still be hot, but not excessive.
