PHOENIX -- The unseasonably cold weather continues for the Valley. Another chilly night is ahead with most locations dropping into the 40s by Wednesday morning. However, a ridge of high pressure building into the state will begin to warm things up rather quickly. By Wednesday afternoon, we expect highs in the mid-70s, which is above average for this time of year.

As the ridge builds into Arizona from the west, we’re looking at some major warming for Thanksgiving (Thursday) and Friday, with highs expected in the low-80s around metro Phoenix. Statewide, high temps will be running about 10-12 degrees above the seasonal norms.

Toward the end of the upcoming weekend, a storm system from the Pacific will approach Arizona. It will shed some clouds into our state by Sunday and Monday, with cooler temperatures, too. And by Tuesday, we’re starting to look at a decent chance for scattered rain and snow showers around the state.
