PHOENIX -- After a brief stint in the 70s, the Valley will head back to afternoon highs in the 80s this weekend.

The average high for this time of year is 72 degrees, but we'll be above that today at about 79 degrees. Expect partly cloudy skies and light winds.

Tonight's overnight lows will dip to the mid 40s to low 50s around town.

Over the weekend, high clouds continue for partly sunny skies and even warmer temperatures. Look for high temperatures in the low 80s both Saturday and Sunday, along with light winds in the Valley. Low 80s and dry weather looks to continue into at least the first half of next week with no rain in sight.

Today marks 63 days in a row for no rain in the Valley.
