PHOENIX -- Temperatures already started to cool down on Wednesday with a high of 101 in Phoenix.

The past couple of days we’ve topped out at 103 degrees.

For the next several days, we anticipate highs will drop into the 90s. In fact, on Friday many Valley locations will see highs only in the low 90s. That’s not bad for this time of year.

The cool air is being ushered into the state by northwesterly winds in the upper atmosphere. And with a trough of low pressure due in for the weekend, that’s when we’ll see the coolest of the temperatures.

After that, a ridge of high pressure will build back in next week and it will get unseasonably warm again.

And don’t expect any rain out of the late week storm. Our weather models indicate that moisture contained in the system will stay north of our state.
