PHOENIX — Get ready for a big warm-up this week as high pressure builds in.
Valley temperatures are climbing into the mid 80s, putting us more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
Although we're not anticipating hitting that 90-degree mark just yet, it will be close in some spots on Wednesday.
The record high on Wednesday is 90 degrees, set in 2016.
The average first 90-degree day in Phoenix occurs in late March.
This unseasonably warm weather won't stick around for long.
Starting Friday, a series of storm systems will bring more wind and a big drop in temperatures. We could also see more rain and snow showers across the state Friday and through the weekend.
Stay tuned for weather updates as we get closer.
