PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- What a terrific Tuesday after a cloudy start to the morning. Those clouds didn’t affect our morning low of 48 degrees, which is still four degrees below average. Daytime highs are mainly in the 70′s. Tonight, look for mostly clear skies; by the early morning hours, lows will be in the upper 40′s.

For travel day Wednesday across the state, expect dry and sunny conditions. It will be windy up in northwestern Arizona with a Wind Advisory in effect from 8 p.m. Wednesday until 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Thursday for the river communities. Look for wind gusts approaching 45 mph out of the north. That same low-pressure system will bring breezy conditions to the Valley on Thanksgiving from the northeast, approaching +20mph in some locations by the afternoon.
