PHOENIX -- Temperatures will continue to rise above average today as a ridge of high pressure sits over the desert Southwest. Wednesday's afternoon high topped out at 95 degrees, a full five degrees above average for May 2.
Today is expected to be nearly as warm with a Valley high forecast near 93 degrees. Highs should warm a handful of degrees for Friday and Saturday before leveling off a bit to start next week.
Look for nothing but sunshine statewide over the weekend.
Overnight lows should stay in the 60s over the next couple of evenings under clear skies.
