Sunny & very warm in the Valley...and staying dry. That will be the primary weather story for the Phoenix area through the end of the week.
Meanwhile, we are closely watching the Doce fire near Prescott...and the conditions will not help with the firefight anytime soon.
The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for Wednesday because of gusty wind and low humidity. Although it will be occasionally breezy in the Valley this week, winds will not be a huge issue here for the next few days.
Summer officially arrives on Thursday night! The "Summer Solstice" happens at 10:04pm Arizona time on Thursday night, marking the highest sun angle and the greatest length of daylight (time between sunrise and sunset) of the year. Although it will be dark when it officially happens, the days around the solstice pretty much represent a similar sun angle and length of day.
