As the storm slowly moves farther away from Arizona, temperatures will begin to warm back up to normal. Thursday morning. Valley lows dropped to the 30s around town and afternoon highs will stay a couple degrees below normal near 70 degrees under sunny skies.
Friday afternoon will be a bit warmer at 75 degrees, which is average for the Valley for mid-March. We'll be near 80 for Sunday and into next week with sunny and dry weather for at least the next seven days.
