The Phoenix area is expected to hit its first 100-degree day this year by this weekend. 

"Temperatures will remain well above normal and then going into Saturday and Sunday is almost certain when things pick up," said Jessica Leffel, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service Phoenix. "Sunday is actually going to be the potential of reaching our first 100-degree day of the year. Right now we have a forecast high at 102 degrees."

Leffel added the hot weekend will be followed by a cold front, which may melt snow and cause flooding in higher elevations.
