PHOENIX -- Warmer-than-average temperatures are forecast for the Valley through the holiday weekend. 

High clouds can be expected from time to time, but shouldn't affect our afternoon temperatures, which are forecast to be five to 10 degrees above average for the next few days. 

Today, look for mostly sunny skies and a high of 85 degrees.  Overnight lows will continue to be cool in the upper 40s to upper 50s around the Valley. 

NASCAR fans will be treated to lots of sunshine, light winds and mid 80s.  No rain is expected for the next seven days and even warmer weather is forecast for the beginning of next week.
