PHOENIX — Temperatures are dropping and winds are picking up over the next couple of days.

After flirting with the triple digits, Valley highs will fall back into the mid 90s Wednesday and low 90s Thursday and Friday.

Winds will stay breezy in the Valley with peak gusts near 25 mph Wednesday and 30 mph on Thursday.

It will get windy across northern Arizona with gusts near 40 mph Wednesday and 45 mph on Thursday.

That's going to increase fire danger quite a bit as conditions stay dry.
