Possible record warmth as we head toward the weekend

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

As we climb into the mid 90s, Valley highs will flirt with 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.

High 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 mostly sunny and dry forecast continues.
