PHOENIX — High pressure is in control and sending temperatures soaring!

Phoenix hit 105 degrees on Thursday and we'll be just as hot on Friday.

Breezes will pick up across Arizona with even stronger winds expected over the weekend.

That will increase fire danger across our state, so stay alert and make sure nothing is dragging from your vehicle that could cause a spark.

Gusts could top 45 mph across northern Arizona by Sunday with 30 mph gusts here in the Valley.

Those high winds come as low pressure passes to our north, which will also help temperatures drop.

Expect highs in the Valley in the low 100s Saturday, mid 90s Sunday, and low 90s by Memorial Day.
