Delightful weather will grace the region this week w/ near perfect conditions for any outdoor activity. Some may be making a good walk in Scottsdale - we know many will be plenty hydrated - just make sure some of that is in the form of water. #azwx pic.twitter.com/3VqqPqq2cd— NWS Phoenix (@NWSPhoenix) February 7, 2022
