PHOENIX -- Our streak of pleasantly warm afternoons is continuing into the weekend across the Valley.

A dip in the jet stream is keeping a northwesterly flow of dry and mild air into Arizona.

Friday morning, look for temperatures to start out in the mid 50s Valley-wide under clear skies. Phoenix should bottom out at 55. The high country will see lows in the 20s and 30s, with Flagstaff dipping to 30.

The Valley will see abundant sunshine during the afternoon and top out in the mid 80s. Phoenix should reach a high of 85. Seasonal average for this time of year is 88. The high country will reach the 50s and 60s, with Flagstaff topping out at 58.

Expect very little change into the weekend, with highs Saturday and Sunday in Phoenix reaching 86 both days.

High pressure begins to build in from the west to kick off the new work week, but don’t expect to notice a difference in the weather. 80-degree highs and 50-degree lows under clear skies will continue their reign.
