PHOENIX — High pressure is building in and warming us up for the rest of the week.
Here in Phoenix, highs will top out in the upper 80s Thursday and Friday as our forecast stays sunny and dry.
Overnight lows will stay cool, though. Across the Valley, we'll drop into the upper 50s to low 60s around sunrise each morning.
Skies will stay mostly sunny over the weekend as temperatures warm into the upper 80s Saturday and Sunday. That will put us several degrees above normal for this time of year.
Then, a weak storm system will move in from the west early next week.
We could see a few spotty showers across northern Arizona as it tracks through on Tuesday, but our Valley forecast will stay dry.
It will also bring us some cooler air.
Valley highs will be back in the upper 70s by next Wednesday.
