PHOENIX — After the coldest night of the season in the Valley, expect a slow rebound in our temperatures the rest of the week.

A passing storm system will reinforce the mild temperatures for another day, along with producing windy conditions in western Arizona. A Wind Advisory takes effect Friday for portions of the Colorado River Valley, including Lake Mead, Lake Havasu, and Bullhead City. Wind gusts may reach 40 mph at times.

Valley highs will stay in the mid 60s Friday and near 70 this weekend!

Next week looks even warmer with highs in the low 70s through the first day of winter, which is this Tuesday.

Then, another storm system may bring more rain, snow, and cooler temps to the state. Stay tuned to ABC15 for further updates as we get closer!
