Last day in the 90s before HUGE changes arrive

PHOENIX - Valley highs have reached the low 90s this afternoon, putting Trick-or-Treating temperatures in the mid to upper 80s around sunset and upper 70s by 9 p.m.

As we head into the weekend we are tracking huge changes as a storm system is set to move across our state.

Winds will start to get gusty across northern Arizona this evening with gusts up to 30 mph. Winds will be lighter in the Valley today, but they'll be stronger on Saturday.

We'll get breezes up to 20 to 25 mph in the Valley Saturday but gusts will be as high as 50 mph across northern Arizona!

You'll want to watch out for areas of blowing dust and reduced visibility as the winds kick up around the state.

Scattered showers will track across northern Arizona Saturday and Sunday, as well. Spots above 7,000 feet could even see snow on Sunday as a blast of cold air arrives.

We'll stay dry in the Valley Saturday, but we could see a few showers on Sunday. Right now our Sunday rain chances are only at 20-percent.

Our temperatures will take a nose dive through the weekend.

Look for highs to drop about 10 degrees, to the low 80s, by Saturday. Then, the cool-down will continue, taking us to the mid 70s on Sunday and Monday.
