Temperatures are heating up to kick off the week.

So far, we've hit 98 degrees in Phoenix this afternoon. (That's tied for the warmest day so far this year with April 10th.)

Valley highs will hit the mid 90s tomorrow with overnight lows ranging from the low 60s to low 70s.

Clouds will stream in overnight and winds will ramp up through the day tomorrow as our next storm system moves in.

Valley gusts could be as high as 30 mph Tuesday afternoon.

Up north, winds will gust as high as 40 to 50 mph and Wind Advisories will be in effect across most of northern Arizona. We'll have to watch out for blowing dust along I-40, as well.

Red Flag Warnings for potential wildfire danger will be in effect for most of our state tomorrow too, including right here in the Valley.

The cool air with this system arrives on Wednesday, dropping highs to the upper 80s across the Phoenix metro. State-wide, we're looking at an 8 to 10 degree drop for most of us.

Temperatures will rebound into the low 90s here in Phoenix Thursday and Friday under mostly sunny skies.

Breezes will start to pick back up late Friday and things are looking a bit windy on Saturday as a second, stronger low pressure system arrives.

This one will bring a 10 to 12 degree cool-down to start the weekend with a high of only 80 degrees in Phoenix on Saturday.

Winds could gust as high as 35 mph in the Valley Saturday with gusts near 50 mph up north.

Right now, the Valley looks to stay dry but there will be chances for showers and thunderstorms in the mountains north and east of us, as well as across all of northern Arizona, on Saturday.

We'll keep some breezes around on Sunday with Valley highs still in the low 80s.

Then, temperatures will rebound to the upper 80s by the start of next week.
