Updated today at 10:01 AM
PHOENIX -- After a chilly start in the 30s, Valley residents can expect a sunny and warmer afternoon. Temperatures will warm to about 76 degrees Wednesday afternoon, which is about 5 degrees above average for this time of year.
High pressure is strengthening and shifting toward the desert Southwest, bringing warmer temperatures beginning this afternoon. Overnight lows tonight and into tomorrow morning will be more mild. We'll see low 80s for Thanksgiving in the Valley, which is just a few degrees shy of the record for tomorrow's date.
Warm and dry conditions continue into the weekend, but a storm could bring cooler temperatures and rain by early to middle of next week.
