Discussion:

Late last week, we hit record temperatures at the Prescott Airport, with highs breaking the record for these days on Thursday of 101 and Friday of 102. Ugh!

Expect continued warm, breezy at times and dry this week, with slight cooling by Wednesday. The air will remain unusually dry for this time of year due to troughing over the Pacific northwest, which will continue to direct southwesterly wind across the area. Precipitation is unlikely for at least another week.

You may have noticed some smoke in the air over the weekend, which originated over Southern California (the Apple Fire).
