Heading to Phoenix then Tempe this weekend. Just wondering what to expect. I've only experienced the dry heat there before.

Arrive without expectations. If you experience a haboob or monsoonal dust/rain/windstorm, it will be like nothing you could ever imagine.

Right now, the Monsoon storms are rolling off of the Rim. Humidity is up, but themes are down.

Previous two days, since we returned from "Winter" in Australia, have been closer to Summer in New Orleans, with moderately high heat, but also humidity about 65%.

Good luck,

Deadly lightning, flash floods, people rescued from cars that were washed downstream, people trapped by rising floodwaters. Yep just another Monsoon (Which means Seasonal wind shift, so that is why we only say "The Monsoons")
