Clear skies tonight, mostly sunny and high of 80 on Wednesday

PHOENIX -- Temperatures are going up to a lovely 77 degrees, but it's going to get windy this evening and likely stay gusty through the night and into the early morning hours.

Look for winds to kick up to about 17mph between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. The strongest winds will likely be in the western part of the state. While we probably won't see the blowing dust we had yesterday, it is a possibility with some high wind gusts anticipated.

Plan on a high of 80 degrees tomorrow, 87 Thursday and Friday and then back down to the mid 80s for your weekend.

When will the mercury hit 100° this year?  Take a guess and you could win a new AC system from Ace Air.
