PHOENIX -- Rather seasonal temperatures are expected around metro Phoenix this weekend with highs around 105, and overnight lows in the upper 70s.

However, by the middle of next week a strong ridge of high pressure will build into the western third of the country bringing much warmer conditions. Wednesday through Friday of next week we’ll be looking at highs in the 110 to 115 range.

High country weather will also be sunny and dry through the weekend with seasonal temps; highs in the 70s and 80s and overnight lows in the 50s and 60s.
