“For (Nov. 9) plan on mostly sunny skies with periods of passing high clouds. Daytime highs will step back into the 84˚F-96˚F range around the Valley. Breezy east winds in the 7-14 mph range will continue, along with localized gusts around 20 mph into the evening hours. Further cooling is expected on Thursday as the cutoff disturbance to our south continues to modify the air mass over our region. Afternoon highs will fall back into the low 80s around the Valley with mid to upper 70s across northern portions of the county. Quiet conditions and perfect fall weather are in the forecast for this upcoming weekend,” D. Henz of the flood control district wrote in a weather outlook for Maricopa County.

The Flood Control District of Maricopa County was created in 1959 to reduce the risk of flooding to people and property, according to http://www.fcd.maricopa.gov/about.aspx.

The mission of the district is to provide regional flood hazard identification, regulation, remediation, and education to Maricopa County residents so that they can reduce the risk of injury, death, and property damage from flooding, while still enjoying the natural and beneficial values served by floodplains.

The district’s vision is for the residents of Maricopa County and future generations to have the maximum level of protection from the effects of flooding through fiscally responsible flood control actions and multi-use facilities that complement and enhance the beauty of our desert environment.
