This week will be the warmest week so far this year, with a broadscale ridge over the Southwest. High temperatures will generally be in the 70s. However, we will see slight cooling and breezes Monday & Tuesday as an upper-level trough skirts around the ridge through the Great Basin.
Moreover, two weak troughs are forecast to move through Arizona Thursday to Friday and again on Friday to Saturday in association with a subtropical jet embedded within the ridge aloft. These troughs will bring periods of high clouds and breezes especially Thursday to Friday, with possible virga or even some light rain showers reaching the ground Thursday afternoon to Friday morning. Afternoon breezes will linger through the weekend, but temperatures will remain warmer than normal. No measurable precipitation is expected this week.
