Phoenix weather: Warm-up continues

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Although it's technically still winter, Mother Nature is about to crank up the heat around Arizona. 

The week was off to a beautiful start, with sunshine and Valley temperatures in the mid 70s.

Average highs this time of year are in the 70s, but on Tuesday, we'll jump to the low 80s, and into the upper 80s on Wednesday.  On Thursday, we could make a run at a few records with forecast highs in the low 90s. The record for Thursday is 91 degrees and the record for Friday is 92 degrees, and those are the exact temperatures we are forecasting. 

Low 90s and sunshine looks likely to stick around through the weekend with mild overnight lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.
