PHOENIX -- The Valley is in for a warm Wednesday as the mid-90s return. 

The mercury climbed to 94 Tuesday, which is 8 degrees above average for this time of year.  We'll top out near 94 degrees again this afternoon under partly cloudy skies. 

High pressure that's been sitting over the Southwest begins to slide east today, with a weak weather disturbance moving into Arizona from the west.  As this disturbance pushes west to east across Arizona today and tomorrow, we'll see high clouds increase across the state. 

No rain is expected in the Valley, but some light showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible the next few days in the high country. 

Clear skies and temperatures in the 80s return by the weekend.  Overnight lows will stay in the 50s and low 60s.
