PHOENIX — Summer might finally be in the Valley’s rearview mirror.

The Phoenix temperature could dip into the 50s on Friday morning for the first time since May, according to the National Weather Service.

“Friday morning is going to be pretty chilly … the coldest temperatures we’ve seen this fall,” Andrew Deemer of the National Weather Service in Phoenix told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Thursday. “For most folks in the Valley, we’re going to be in the 50s, so it might be a good time to break out that old winter jacket.”

Chandler, Peoria and Mesa are among the cities where the low is expected to dip into the upper 50s, according to NWS.

“Any time you get into the 50s, it’s cold at first,” Deemer said. “In March, we might be singing a different tune, but we haven’t seen these temperatures in months.”

Phoenix might miss out this time on the 50s. The forecast low at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, NWS’ official temperature location for the city, is 60 degrees.

Deemer said the airport is among the warmest spots in the Valley, so it’s not surprising for it to be warmer than outlying areas.

Phoenix hasn’t experienced temperatures in the 50s since May 24, when the low at Sky Harbor was 59 degrees.

The lows will warm up a bit in the days to follow but aren’t expected to exceed the mid-60s in the next week.

High temperatures in Phoenix this weekend are expected to touch the low 90s, according to NWS.
