PHOENIX -- A weather pattern change is on tap for the Valley for the next few days. 

High pressure is shifting and that means our southeasterly flow of monsoon moisture has shifted, replaced by a drier flow of air from the west. That dry air will limit storm potential for much of the state and allow afternoon temperatures to climb a bit higher.

While there is a chance for storms in the higher elevations of Northern and Eastern Arizona, the Valley will likely stay dry today. 

Look for a Valley high of 108 degrees under partly sunny skies. 

We'll be just as warm, if not a bit warmer, tomorrow and Thursday. 

On Friday, our monsoon flow returns for higher humidity and increasing storm chances from Friday through the weekend.
