PHOENIX -- Temperatures are continuing to warm up in central Arizona and for the end of the week, we’ll see high temperatures in the low-to-mid 90s.

No 100 degree days are expected, and early next week we’ll get a cool down with the slightest of chances for rain around metro Phoenix.

The weather disturbance due in next week has a better chance of producing rain showers in northern and eastern Arizona. Statewide temperatures will be dropping off about 15 degrees from weekend highs.

A bit more weather information on March 2013:  While it was the fifth warmest on record for Phoenix, for the continental U.S. it was one of the coldest March time periods.
