PHOENIX — High pressure is back and temperatures are back on the rise.
Phoenix topped out in the upper 70s on Wednesday and we'll climb to near 90 degrees by the end of the week.
Winds will be light here in the Phoenix metro, but we'll continue to see breezy to windy conditions along the Colorado River Valley through Thursday. Northerly winds will hit 25 mph with peak gusts near 35 mph.
Temperatures will start to drop little by little heading through the weekend and into early next week.
Look for highs here in the Valley in the mid 80s Saturday and Sunday and low 80s starting Monday.
Clouds will pass through again starting Sunday, but our forecast is looking dry with no rain chances ahead in the Valley.
That means our Halloween forecast is looking good for trick-or-treaters with temperatures in the 70s after sunset.

Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 5.58" (-0.26" from average)
