PHOENIX -- Look for a sunny and warm Friday the 13th in the Valley with an afternoon high of 81 degrees. That's 11 degrees above average for this time of year.

High pressure slowly rebuilds over our region, leading to clear skies, above average temperatures and light winds today.

Valentine's Day will be a few degrees warmer with partly cloudy skies and a high of 84 degrees. Sunday will be nearly as warm in the low 80s. 

On Monday, a cold front moves our way from the north and joins up with a low pressure system moving up from Mexico. This will lead to a slight chance for showers in eastern Arizona Monday, but dry and breezy weather for the Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, along with slightly cooler temperatures.
