Phoenix weather: Warmer weather arrives

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A ridge of high pressure to our west is sliding east toward Arizona, bringing warmer temperatures and lots of sunshine. 

Today's Valley high is forecast to be 70 degrees, one degree above the average for this time of year.

Temperatures will be above-average this weekend, with high clouds increasing and afternoon temperatures in the mid 70s. 

Overnight lows will eventually rise to the low 50s by the weekend. 

No changes look likely for the start of next week, with dry and warmer weather continuing.
