Possible record warmth by the end of the week

PHOENIX - If you have any outdoor activities planned in the next few days, get them done in the morning because our afternoons are getting much warmer.

High pressure is building in keeping our skies clear and temperatures on the rise.

Valley highs will reach the low to mid 90s today before challenging records on Friday and Saturday.

Right now, Phoenix is forecast to hit 96 degrees on Friday, which would tie the record set back in 2007.

Saturday's record is also 96 degrees and we'll come very close to tying it with a forecast high of 95.

The good news is that our mornings will start out cool with lows in the 60s each day.

A few clouds will stream in Saturday as our ridge of high pressure begins to break down.

Then cooler air starts moving in Sunday knocking most Valley cities down to the upper 80s.

The start of next week looks even better with Valley highs in the low to mid 80s as our sunny and dry forecast continues.
