Heat and increasing humidity for the Desert Southwest

Yuma, Arizona (KYMA, KECY-TV) – Rain continues over Arizona, but the main potential hazards are high winds and blowing dust.

Winds starting to pick up in our area by tonight and will continue through Friday, with gusts of up to 20 mph expected

Dew points are also rising this week, with wet conditions expected by Thursday.

Arizona was isolated by scattered thunderstorms, mostly in high elevations and mountains, until Friday.

For those of us who live in the southwest desert, we expect little here in Yuma, but the Weather Department team will be on the lookout for something.

A gradual decrease in the chance of storms and precipitation is expected over the weekend and into early next week across the region.

A continuous discharge from the Painted Rock Dam continues down the Gila River through Yuma County.

Flood warnings along the Gila River between the Painted Rock Dam and the Colorado River have been extended for an additional seven days, at least until May 23.

Temperatures are expected to remain well above normal through Wednesday, returning to normal levels Thursday through Friday.

Temperatures warmed up again over the weekend, with highs returning to triple digits.
