PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - What a fantastic weather day this Friday to end the week on under mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. High temperatures are still below average for this time of year as our cool streak this month of November continues. Look for partly cloudy skies tonight and a light breeze perfect for football playoff games for local high schools. Sunny and warm on Saturday with highs near 73 degrees, perfect weather for ASU’s Homecoming game in the early afternoon. Sunday looks good as well for the Ironman in Tempe. Look for local road closures around Tempe Town Lake. Check road closures here:

As we sketch out Thanksgiving week, a dry, stable pattern in our weather will continue, along with the unseasonably cooler temperatures. Travel across the state will be perfect by car or by plane. Sunny skies and highs in the mid- 70′s will prevail through Thanksgiving Thursday.

Give thanks for this forecast! Dinner outside, perhaps?
