PHOENIX -- Thursday looks to be a warm and windy day for Arizona as another storm system passes by to our north. 

Winds are expected to pick up out of the southwest later this afternoon, especially in Northern Arizona where a Red Flag Warning and Fire Weather Watch are in place. Winds are expected between 15 and 25 mph with higher gusts. 

In the Valley, we'll see 5-15 mph winds, and possibly slightly higher wind speeds again tomorrow afternoon as another dry system moves by to our north. 

Tomorrow's dry front will drive southwesterly winds and bring cloud cover and cooler temperatures, but no rain.

Look for a Valley high temperatures of about 100 degrees today under clear skies.

Valley highs are expected to top out near normal for this time of year tomorrow at about 95 degrees. Low 90s and sunshine are expected Saturday and mid 90s on Sunday. 

No rain is expected for at least the next seven days, and triple digits are likely to return next week.
