PHOENIX -- A strong ridge of high pressure is bringing unseasonably warm temperatures to Arizona.

In metro Phoenix, that means we’re looking at highs in the mid-to-upper 90s through Friday with moderating temperatures this weekend.

On Thursday and Friday it is possible we could exceed some record highs across Arizona. The weekend cool-down will be due to a weak area of low pressure that will pass over the state and give us a break from this warm weather.
