PHOENIX — Get ready for a huge warm-up this week!
Our mornings will stay chilly, with Valley lows in the mid to upper 40s the next few days.
Daytime highs are climbing, though. Valley temperatures will top out in the low 70s through Monday, then we'll warm into the mid 70s by midweek.
As high pressure builds to our west and gradually moves toward our state, Valley temperatures could reach the 80s for the first time this year by the end of the week! That would put us about 10 degrees above the normal for this time of year.
Breezes will continue over the next couple days with Valley wind gusts topping out near 25 mph.
Stronger winds continue impacting areas along in central and northern Arizona this evening. A Wind Advisory is in place for the Yavapai County mountains through tonight, including for areas south of Prescott and south of the Bradshaw Mountains. Gusts in these areas will peak between 35 and 45 mph.
At this point, our forecast is looking dry for the foreseeable future.
