Phoenix weather: Friday forecast

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- It's almost the weekend and we have great temperatures to tell you about. Expect a high of 84 today with light to moderate winds by the afternoon.

There is a Red Flag Warning along the Colorado River Valley until 7 p.m. Gusts up to 40 mph and sustained winds close to 30 mph have already started Friday morning.

We are transitioning from the effects of the large, strong and cold storm system to the northeast of Arizona and a ridge of high pressure centered in the Pacific. The ridge will strengthen and move closer to our state this weekend. That means, we will warm above average starting Sunday into next week.

It'll be a warm Halloween.
