We start off the weekend with cool and dry conditions followed by a warming trend thanks to a slight increase in heights aloft and a modest ridging pattern. Looking ahead, Afternoon highs will creep up into the mid ‘70s and conditions will remain mostly clear with periods of passing clouds as mid-level moisture streams in from the west. More ‘70s start off the work week as the axis of the ridge moves across AZ and the Western U.S.

For tomorrow expect mostly clear skies with afternoon highs Valley-wide in the 68°F-72°F range. Overnight expect breezy conditions around 15 mph with some higher locales north and east of the Valley up to 20-25mph.
