The first week of September will feel very much like summer typically does in the Valley. It will be hot and humid with chance for afternoon storms. Today's highs should push into the lower 90s with a heat index in the upper 90s to near 100. Scattered storms will pop up with the heat of the afternoon. The majority of that activity will diminish within a few hours of sunset. Lows tonight will drop into the lower 70s.
It's more of the same for the rest of the week. Scattered storms should pop up each afternoon through the weekend. That being said, you won't see rain every single day. Given the high heat and humidity, some of the storms could be strong. Frequent lighting, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain can be expected with the more intense storms. An isolated severe storm is not out of the question. As we enter the weekend, highs will still be in the lower 90s. We should be in store for some slightly cooler weather towards the middle of next week.
Have a nice day.
