Temperatures sizzle with another morning low record in jeopardy

PHOENIX - Thursday was the hottest day of the year so far!

Phoenix Sky Harbor hit 116 degrees, breaking the record of 114 set in 2006.

On top of that, we set another record warm low with Sky Harbor only falling to 93 degrees. The previous record warm low was 90, set back in 2006.

It could be another record-breaking morning today with Phoenix Sky Harbor only expected to drop into the low 90s. The current record warm low is 90 degrees set back in 2003.

We will be getting away from record highs though. Our Friday forecast is 110 degrees, five degrees shy of the record.

Storms will continue to fire up mainly north and northwest of the Valley on Friday, but there is a slight chance of seeing a little something in the Phoenix metro, too.

We'll also hold onto a slight chance of isolated storms through the weekend and into next week with a 20% chance later today.

A blowing dust advisory is in effect during the afternoon hours due to the threat of blowing dust from storms that develop south and southeast.

We'll finally see afternoon temperatures below 110 by Saturday and Sunday, but highs are expected to stay above the 30-year average of 106 over the next week or so.
