PHOENIX — As high pressure builds in, temperatures are back on the rise and our forecast will stay sunny and dry.
Winds will be light in the Valley, but we are expecting more breezy to windy conditions along the Colorado River Valley on Friday.
Places like Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City could see peak wind gusts near 40 mph.
Winds will back off over the weekend and we'll stay sunny and dry statewide Saturday and Sunday.
Valley highs will continue to hit the mid to upper 80s each afternoon with early morning lows in the 50s.
Then, as high pressure breaks down next week and a few weak disturbances move through, temperatures will drop and clouds will move in.
Expect highs across the Valley in the low 80s Tuesday and Wednesday before dropping into the upper 70s by the end of next week.
