The Phoenix area is expected to see another warming trend as conditions become drier after monsoons hit the Valley and state hard in the last few weeks.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said on Saturday that Phoenix reached 100 degrees, which beat a four-day streak of temperatures under 100 degrees.

On Sunday, NWS said Phoenix reached 104 degrees and it's only going to get warmer in the next week, with Phoenix possibly reaching 110 degrees.

Sunday marked the fourteenth straight day with a below normal high, NWS said.

"While Heat Risk is anticipated to be Low due to below normal highs, spots with thinner cloud cover could wind up with higher Heat Risk. Those doing prolonged activities outdoors can still be vulnerable. As always, be prepared for heat - especially with the higher humidity," NWS said.

Adding, "By midweek, excessive heat will be possible as highs approach or exceed 110°. Remember to stay cool, drink plenty of water, and limit your outdoor activities."

In the last few weeks, parts of Arizona like Flagstaff, Globe and Gila Bend saw historic flooding that destroyed homes, killed at least three people and made roads undrivable.
