Phoenix weather: Warm weather ahead

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A warming trend is undereway in the desert.

Over the weekend, the Valley saw highs in the low to mid 70s. Under a building ridge of high pressure, more sunshine and above-average afternoon temperatures are likely.

Look for mid 70s today, rising to the upper 70s by the end of this week. Overnight lows will stay close to average under clear skies, bottoming out in the upper 30s to low 50s across the Valley.

No changes look likely until early next week at the earliest.
