PHOENIX — Our latest storm system is now headed out, but chances for showers remain across southeastern Arizona through early Thanksgiving morning.

As winds shift out of the north behind this storm system, it's getting very windy along the Colorado River Valley in Mohave County.

A Wind Advisory is in effect for Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City. Watch out for wind gusts near 45 mph there.

Here in the Valley, gusts could hit 25 mph Thursday afternoon as highs top out in the mid-70s .

Temperatures will be a bit warmer by Friday with Valley highs in the upper 70s.

As high pressure returns, look for sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s through the weekend.

Then, we'll be back in the low 80s toward the middle of next week. That will put us more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
