MOST ACCURATE FORECAST: BIG changes this weekend!

PHOENIX - It's another sunny and dry day in the Valley as highs peak in the upper 60s to low 70s. 

The Valley is also under a Health Watch for particle pollution today. So, limit your time outside and try to carpool or ride public transportation to help if you can.    

Winds are getting stronger across the state as a cold front moves in, but we're not expecting anything more than a few breezes across the Phoenix metro.

Wind gusts are peaking near 40 mph across northern Arizona and a Wind Advisory is in effect along the Colorado River Valley in northwestern portions of our state. Gusts in spots like Bullhead City could top 50 mph.   

Areas all along the Colorado River are also under a Red Flag Warning for potential wildfire danger today because of the high winds and dry air.  

Winds will back off overnight and then we'll have our eyes on the next storm system moving in this weekend. 

Clouds will fill our sky Saturday and Sunday and now we're tracking rain chances, as well.

The Valley could see a few showers Saturday night and Sunday and maybe even hear a few rumbles of thunder, too.

Up north, the snow level will drop to around 4,500 feet with the potential of seeing an inch or two of snow in Flagstaff. 

Sunshine returns next week as we start another warm-up. Look for Valley highs in the 70s again by Tuesday.
