PHOENIX — We're warming up as we head into the weekend!
Valley highs will reach the mid to upper 60s on Saturday, before climbing into the low to mid 70s on Sunday.
Early morning temperatures will stay chilly, though. Phoenix will drop to the low to mid 40s, but outlying Valley spots will still be in the 30s around sunrise each day.
A weak storm system will pass through the Four Corners this weekend bringing some slightly colder air to northern Arizona on Saturday, but our forecasts across Arizona will stay dry.
As winds shift out of the north, it will get windy along the Colorado River Valley. Wind Advisories are in effect Saturday for Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City where peak gusts will hit 45 mph.
Winds here in the Valley will stay light and conditions will stay dry heading into next week.
As temperatures keep climbing, we'll be back in the 80s by next Tuesday and edging toward the upper 80s by Wednesday.
That will be a 30-degree warm-up in less than a week here in the Valley!
