PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — It’s a fairly chilly start to the day across Arizona, with below-freezing temperatures in parts of the high country and a mix of 50s and 60s in the Valley. Look for lots of sunshine and a high of 90 degrees in Phoenix today, which is about four degrees below normal for this time of year.

High pressure building in from the west will lead to a gradual warm-up for the rest of this week. Morning temperatures will stay cool, but we’ll climb from the 60s to the 70s by the weekend. Meanwhile, afternoon temperatures will hover near 100 degrees Thursday through the weekend.

Dry weather is expected in the Valley for the next seven days at least. A back door cold front will bring a slight chance of rain to Eastern and Northern Arizona Friday and into the weekend.
