Groundhog's winter weather predictions might not apply to Valley of the Sun

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Punxatawny Phil says six more weeks of winter, but our forecast for Valley is filled with sunshine and warm temperatures.

Look for highs in the mid to upper 60s Thursday and Friday, topping out near 70 over the weekend. Mostly sunny skies are expected, with overnight lows in the 40s.

Out at the TPC, temperatures dropped to the low 40s Thursday morning, but it was much cooler on the grass. Lower elevations on the course began to develop frost and an hour delay was put in place Thursday.

Overnight lows are expected to be a degree or two cooler Friday and Saturday morning, so more frost delays are a possibility.
