Phoenix weather: Warm weather peaks today, tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A ridge of high pressure over the West strengthens a bit today and tomorrow, bringing us our warmest temperature of the week. 

Look for Valley highs near 80 degrees Thursday and Friday under mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows are forecast to range from the mid 40s to low 50s around the Valley. 

Over the weekend, high pressure weakens slightly, with afternoon temperatures coming down a couple of degrees. 

A bigger change is forecast for next Tuesday and Wednesday, when a storm targets Arizona.  Unfortunately, at this point, the storm looks to be a dry one, with rain and snow chances pretty slim across the Arizona.  However, breezy weather is expected along with Valley highs only topping out in the low 70s by mid-week.
