90-degree highs continue in the Valley

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Double-digit highs continue for part two of the weekend in the Valley of the Sun, with virtually dry and seasonably warm weather statewide.

A trough situated over the region is producing a southwesterly flow across Arizona that is suppressing most thunderstorm activity. The exception to this rule being across extreme southeast Arizona as well as along the Arizona-Utah border, where there is a slim chance of precipitation.

Moisture associated with tropical storm Norma, hanging out near Baja, should remain well to the south of Arizona because of this set up.

A stronger trough will track through the region towards the middle and end of next week, creating breezy to windy conditions Wednesday through Saturday from the Valley to the high country.

This system's associated cold front will bring a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly to the mountains, Thursday and Friday.

Much cooler air will be ushered in behind this system for next weekend, with the first freezes of the season possible above 6500 feet. The Valley is looking at some really pleasant weather next weekend.

For Metro Phoenix, look for highs in the upper 90s through Tuesday, the mid 90s Wednesday and Thursday, with the upper 80s possible Friday and Saturday. Morning lows will be in the 70s and 60s around the Valley.

Skies should be generally sunny through at least Wednesday, with very slim chances for showers Thursday and Friday.
