but now you can see just a couple of degrees different. here's the deal, though, yesterday we had rain at this time now we've got abundant sunshine. stacy sticking around. that's why our temperatures are still struggling to warm dpoo it that sunshine that we have out there. it's 61 in mesa, gilbert, also chdl 62 in scottsdale. only right at 61 degrees and anthem you're checking in at 63 degrees. so cool as you get ready to head out to lunch. but sunny and dry too. unlike yesterday not tracking any storms. that storm system that brought the rain and know to our state is pushing air out to the east. like minneapolis getting in on a bit of mixed precipitation here.
as far as our state goes we're clearing up the clouds. as drier air moves in. so for today if maybe you're heading out of town early plan on sunny to mostly sunny conditions across the state. cool temperatures through the afternoon but all dry. as we go through tonight looking at clear skies soon and tomorrow a travel day nice and clear across the state. if you're traveling up to flag staff all cle our west looking dry too. even southern california looking dry as we are actually going to get an ridge of high pressure moving in. heading into thanks giving you're barely going to notice it. still dry. and it looks like we're going to stay dry really through the end of the week even into the first half of the weekend.
rain chances back into the high country sunday and monday. the valley still looking to stay dry with that one. but for now again plan on dry weather for thanksgiving also for black friday in case you have plans to get out and about maybe do some shopping. so for the rest of the day we're sitting at 63 degrees. by lunchtime we warm just another degree or so. we'll spend much of the afternoon into the 60s before topping out r here this afternoon with sunny skies. and winds will be lighter too with winds just coming in out of the west northwest between 5 and 10 miles an hour this afternoon. now the next couple of days we'll be getting warmer. so we're going to go from 70 today to back above average. thanksgiving day a high of 75 degrees. that 30 average is 71 to 72. so as we wrap up the week we're going to warm up above average

temperature down to 66 degrees by 6:00 here this evening and then eventually we're back in a the 50s as early as 10:00 tonight. so keep that in mind if you've got evening plans it's going to be chilly out there. i showed you this earlier. back above average by still not so bad. we're talking highs in the mid 70s and if you're going out and about thanksgiving day in the valley. going to be a nice day. if you want to get an rl morning workout in before maybe dinner. temperatures will warm into the upper 60s and then the high that day 75 degrees. very nice. we'll watch for that high temperature around 3:00 to 4:00 and then temperatures cool back into the 60s by 7:00 on thanks giving evening. if you were getting to bed early then temperatures will be chilly that night heading into black friday. let's talk about today.
under clear skies. fountain hills may only make it to 66. lavine up to 68 degrees and 68 for a high today in surprise. phoenix hit 70. and we're looking at highs in the 70s out to our west too. winds today across the state lighter than what we felt yesterday and highs only make it into the upper 40s and flag staff. 48 for a high today in cholo. then tonight it gets cold again. so if you're out and about spots like flag staff down into the 20s. also down into winslow we're down below freezing. down to 31 degrees in prescott. phoenix will drop to 51 degrees. so tomorrow just as cool and you may want that sweater or jacket as you get ready to head out the door. with those temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s across the valley. as you look at that 7-day forecast a high of 70 today.
