Early Heat For Arizona

High temperature will approach 110 degree today in the deserts of Arizona. This is a bit ahead of schedule for the area and about 6 degrees above normal for Phoenix. No relief from the heat until late next week when it may drop back to 100.



Heat Begins To Build Over The Southwest

Temperatures are on the rise across the desert Southwest with widespread 100 degree readings from Palm Springs, CA to Phoenix, AZ. Death Valley reached 111 today it will very similar tomorrow. Visitors to the region should be prepared for the heat and drink plenty of water. Near the coast and mountains, much cooler and very pleasant temperatures in the 70s and 80s.


A Beautiful Day For Oregon After A Long Winter

After a very long…gray…wet winter in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon is long overdue for some sun and warmth. Mid 80s west side Sunday and 70s east side with abundant sunshine should attract a lot of people outdoors. Just be careful in rivers and lakes because the water is still very cold and you can easily get hypothermia. Highs will be 10 to nearly 20 degrees above normal for the 3rd week of May. This great weather does extend north in Washington as well.



Summer Is Nearing


High temperatures today near 90 degrees from Minnesota to Florida. It’s beginning to look a lot like summer. This heat will move into New England the next few days as residents there will be shocked by highs near 90 after such a long stretch cool weather. Of note on the map is Phoenix and Las Vegas in the mid 70s and Portland/Seattle only in the mid 50s.
