PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Some high clouds on your Wednesday did not stop the thermometer from going back into the lower 70′s across the Valley. A dry, southwest flow is keeping us on the dry side once again with on-and-off-high clouds. Tonight, expect a few clouds and lows in the upper 40′s. We will stay warm and dry for Thursday with highs in the low 70′s before a series of low-pressure areas drop down and then north of Arizona, resulting in cooler temperatures and a slight chance of rain.
