Warm week ahead

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- After a windy and cooler weekend, the Valley is bracing for a big warm-up in the new week ahead. 

Monday's highs will top out in the mid 80s under sunny skies.  Breezy conditions can be expected both Monday and Tuesday. 

By Wednesday, a ridge of high pressure will take hold over the desert Southwest, leading to warmer temperatures. This is what happens in May in Phoenix.

Valley temperatures will top out right near the triple-digit mark Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before cooling off a few degrees for the weekend.
