PHOENIX — We're trading in our monsoon moisture for hotter weather these next few days.

Temperatures are soaring through the weekend as high pressure builds in!

High temperatures will top out just slightly above average today, but then top 110 degrees for the first time in weeks, by the weekend.

Valley highs will soar to between 112 and 113 Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We could still reach 110 or hotter each day through at least the middle of next week.

Take precautions in this heat by limiting your time outdoors and staying hydrated.

Dangerously hot conditions are setting in for other parts of the state, too. An Excessive Heat Warning is now in effect from Friday to Sunday for the lower elevations of the Grand Canyon as temperatures soar well into the triple-digits there.

Morning lows will get warmer too, only cooling into the mid to upper 80s to near 90 degrees in the Valley through the weekend. So we won't get much relief from the heat overnight.

There's a chance for thunderstorms in eastern Arizona the next couple of days, otherwise there rest of Arizona looks storm-free through the end of the week.

Monsoon storm chances will return to the high country this weekend, before those chances start climbing in the Valley again next week.
