PHOENIX — Winds are cranking up across Arizona overnight.

Wind Advisories will kick in along the Mogollon Rim, in areas east of Phoenix and across southeastern Arizona.

Wind gusts will top out near 45 mph in many of these areas, but gusts could be much higher near west and southwest facing mountain slopes.

Up north, damaging winds as strong as 70 mph are possible in spots just west and southwest of the San Francisco Peaks and Mt. Elden.

Winds that strong could topple trees or cause other damage, so stay alert. Secure any loose objects around your property, too.

Valley winds will pick up overnight and Friday morning, too. Gusts could hit 25 to 30 mph here.

As high pressure builds in tomorrow, temperatures will climb into the low 70s heading into the weekend.

Another area of low pressure will pass through our state late Saturday and Sunday bringing a slight chance of showers up north, but at this point our Valley forecast is looking dry.

Temperatures will gradually drop next week with Valley highs in the 60s to start February.
