MOST ACCURATE FORECAST: Beautiful weather in the Valley as the 70s continue

Posted at 5:34 AM, Jan 12, 2022

PHOENIX — Our beautiful weather continues in the Valley of the Sun!

We'll see passing clouds and highs in the low 70s over the next week. (That will put us a few degrees above normal for this time of year.)

Our mornings will stay cool, though. Expect overnight lows into the mid 40s to low 50s throughout the week.

Air quality will continue to be an issue in the early morning hours as particle pollution settles over the Valley. If you have any respiratory issues, limit your time outside between 5 and 10 a.m.

Winds will pick up a bit on Saturday with peak wind gusts near 25 mph here in the Valley. We'll see more cloud coverage too, but our forecast looks dry now through the weekend.
