Fair skies tonight, mostly sunny with a high of 84 on Wednesday

PHOENIX -- It's going to be a bit cooler today, with a high in the upper 70s, but it's going to warm up quickly. We could see our first 90-degree day later this week.

It was a cloudy start to the day, but that was expected to clear up by the afternoon. The temperature should top out at about 78.

We'll be back in the 80s -- 86 -- Wednesday. And then flirting with 90 Thursday. We usually hit that by April 1 or so. We'll probably drop back into the 80s for Friday and through the weekend.

Overnight lows are also warming up a bit, hovering around the low 60s.

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