PHOENIX — PHOENIX — Friday was the last relatively cool day before a big warm-up sets in this weekend.
High pressure builds to our west over the weekend, sending temperatures into the upper 70s Saturday and 80s on Sunday.
Highs will top out in the mid to upper 80s by the middle of next week so, make sure you're staying hydrated.
We'll stay dry statewide this weekend but the breezes will remain up north where gusts could still reach 25 mph. Winds in the Valley will be about 5 to 10 mph.
Thanks to the wind last week and now a warm up, the pollen count in the Valley is shooting up and will stay high for the next several days with main allergens being mulberry, ash, and juniper.
