More triple digit heat in the Valley on this Thursday: 100º and breezy this afternoon in Phoenix.
We're stuck between a low pressure system over the Pacific Northwest and a high pressure ridge over the middle of the country, causing the occasional rounds of wind across the state.
In the Valley, we'll see sustained winds of 10-20 mph. VERY windy, however, in the northern and eastern part of Arizona, with gusts up to 45 mph.
The windy and dry conditions in the high country will keep our fire danger high.
Don't expect to have a campfire if you have plans to be in the great outdoors in the near future.
A bit of relief is on the way for your holiday weekend. Highs will ever-so-slightly side back into the mid/upper 90s over the weekend.
