Temperatures are warm and stuffy, with readings in the upper 60s to middle 70s.
After a hot day Monday, temperatures will be below normal for the remainder of the week. Some storms will also bring locally heavy rain at times and flooding, or flash flooding, will be a concern overnight. The biggest change in the forecast today will be a cold front helping to spark bigger and possibly severe thunderstorms across the eastern plains. The storm is expected to produce rainfall amounts between three-quarters of an inch and an inch and a quarter, NWS said. Lows on Thursday night will range from the upper 40s to low 50s. This could trigger an afternoon T'storm, but most of the activity looks to hold off until the nighttime. The chance of rain will vary between 60% East of I-65 down to 30% across Western Alabama. Lows will dip into the mid-upper 70s.
The area of low pressure that has created this unsettled pattern will begin to weaken late in the week and conditions will become more seasonable.
Phoenix Scores 2024 Final Four
Only Kansas City, which was the site of 10 Final Fours from 1940-88, has been the site of more. And you know what? Phoenix Local Organizing Committee had no idea if they would win bid.
Temperatures will drop into the low to mid 80s under sunny skies. A few lingering showers may be possible, too. "There may be heavy downpours with some of the showers which may cause localized flooding".
Sunday, the pick of the weekend (and maybe even of the entire 7-day), will be the relief that we've been searching for. We can't rule out an isolated storm on Friday.
