A hazardous weather outlook has been issued by the National Weather Service in Bellemont for Apache, Coconino, Northern Gila, Navajo and Yavapai Counties.

A slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms will occur over the White Mountains today. Since these storms should generally be high-based, the main hazards should be gusty winds and lightning.

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect from 10-am Thursday through Friday evening for all of Yavapai County, Northern Gila County, the Grand Canyon, Marble Canyon, and Glen Canyon areas. Temperatures will range from 100 to 115 degrees.

Thunderstorm chances will increase over northern Arizona through the end of the week.
