PHOENIX — We're feeling the heat as we wrap up the week!
With high pressure in control, temperatures are running more than 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
Valley highs will top out in the mid 90s again on Friday before edging up into the upper 90s in some Valley neighborhoods on Saturday.
Breezes will continue with peak gusts near 25 mph here in the Valley for the next few days.
As we head into next week, we're tracking a storm system moving in from the Pacific Northwest.
Winds will pick up even more as that storm approaches and peak gusts here in the Valley could approach 35 to 40 mph on Tuesday as it moves in.
It will also bring in a big dose of cool air and chances for rain and snow.
It's too soon to tell how low the snow level will go or how much we could see, so stay tuned for updates on those specifics as we get closer.
Here in the Valley, we could see spotty showers on Tuesday as temperatures drop to the 70s.
Then, we'll dry out and warm back up by the end of next week.
