PHOENIX — High pressure is back and temperatures are back on the rise.

Temperatures in the Valley peaked in the upper 80s Thursday afternoon and by Friday afternoon most spots will be back in the low 90s.

Winds will be light here in the Phoenix metro, but we'll continue to see breezy conditions impact parts of northwestern and southeastern Arizona.

Temperatures will start to drop little by little through the weekend and into early next week as high pressure weakens and a couple of storm systems pass by to our north.

Look for highs here in the Valley in the mid 80s Saturday and Sunday and low 80s starting Monday.

Clouds will move through again Sunday and early next week, but our forecast is looking dry with no rain chances ahead in the Valley.

That means our Halloween forecast is looking good for trick-or-treaters with temperatures in the 70s after sunset.
