PHOENIX — Heating things up as we head into the Easter weekend!

Valley highs return to 90 degrees today, then the low 90s for Easter Sunday.

A storm system will be passing to our north, meaning winds will increase across our state.

Expect breezes back in the Valley this afternoon with gusts near 30 mph and windy conditions up north with gusts as high as 50 mph. Wind Advisories are now in effect for most of northern Arizona on Saturday.

Then high pressure builds in as we head into next week, and that's sending temperatures into the upper 90s by Monday.

Valley highs will be near record on Monday, too. Phoenix looks to top out at 97 degrees that day. The record on Monday stands at 100 degrees set back in 1989.
