MOST ACCURATE FORECAST: Warmer days ahead in the Valley!

Posted at 5:20 AM, Jan 03, 2022

PHOENIX — It's going to be another cold morning in the Valley!

Overnight lows will be back in the 30s by sunrise, but will stay above the freezing point of 32 degrees.

We'll see a few clouds overhead early in the morning, but the rest of the day looks sunny and dry.

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.

Afternoon highs will peak in the mid 60s across the Valley through the middle of the week.

We could see our first 70s of the year by Friday!

Temperatures will dip slightly over the weekend as a storm system passes to our north. That will put Phoenix back in the upper 60s on Saturday.

We could see a few light snow showers in the high country Saturday and Sunday too, but our Valley forecast looks dry.
