The freezing temperatures around our state will be around until at least Wednesday before a gradual warm-up.
A Freeze Warning in effect since Saturday morning has now been extended until 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Spots across our state hit well below the freezing mark Monday morning. Scottsdale Airport bottomed out at 25 degrees, Sky Harbor dropped to 30 degrees and the Flagstaff Airport hit -6 this morning.
Today's highs will peak in the mid to upper 40s Valley-wide. Plan for a high of 48 degrees in Phoenix.
That is nearly 20 degrees colder than our 30-year seasonal average for this date.
Tomorrow morning, Sky Harbor will fall to 30 degrees. That is typically one of our warmer spots, so other areas around the Valley will surely fall into the low to mid 20s.
Temperatures will finally get back into the 60s toward the middle and later parts of the week, as a ridge of high pressure starts to build in.
Highs will climb from the low 50s on Tuesday, all the way to the mid to upper 60s by Thursday with overnight lows gradually rebounding to the low 40s by Thursday morning.
Protect the pets, water pipes, and plants! Also, be aware when driving that roadways that are in shaded areas could have black ice, making for hazardous driving conditions.
