All right with average

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Being average isn't so bad this time of year. Look for Valley highs in the low to mid 80s today, temperatures that are just about exactly average for early April in Phoenix. 

We're forecast to stay in the 80s through Thursday, with overnight lows hovering in the mid 40s and 50s. 

Look for breezy weather tomorrow afternoon and evening, with southwesterly winds between 15 and 25 mph. 

A ridge of high pressure is forecast to build in over the weekend, bringing unseasonably warm afternoon temperatures in the 90s. Overnight lows will stay mild, in the 50s and 60s.  

In Tempe, runners will be treated to especially nice weather for this year's Pat's Run.  Saturday morning, temperatures in Tempe should be in the upper 50s around the 7 a.m. start of the race.
