PHOENIX -- It's been a hot week, but the heat will ease up as temperatures head back to normal and monsoon storms threaten to return. 

Look for a high of 104 today in the Valley with partly sunny skies and a slight chance of afternoon and evening storms.  Overnight lows should dip to the mid 80s. 

Tomorrow and into the weekend, temperatures will drop off a bit more, with storm chances near 30 percent for the Valley Friday and Saturday. 

There will still be a slight chance of storms on Sunday and into Labor Day, with highs near 105 degrees. 

There is an increased chance ofmonsoon storms (about 40 percent) in the high country this holiday weekend.  Afternoon highs will be in the 70s and 80s in the mountains.
