As temperatures heat up and winds lighten up, ozone pollution is at unhealthy levels for children, older adults and anyone with respiratory issues. Another Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect again today.
The next storm system we're tracking will approach from the west on Friday. Temperatures will drop, winds will pick up and we could see showers and thunderstorms break out again across our state. There's even a slight chance here in the Valley for a few spotty showers and thunderstorms.
Stronger winds will also pose a new wildfire threat across our state, especially in northwest Arizona where a Fire Weather Watch is in effect on Friday. Gusts in those areas could peak near 45 mph.
As cooler air arrives, temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 90s across the Valley this weekend and early next week.
