Things to heat up for the weekend, but cool off quickly again with rain chances early next week

We are in for a temperature rollercoaster ride with a few opportunities of rain.

PHOENIX — Critical fire weather conditions will be found in northeastern Arizona Friday, with low relative humidity and 35 mph gusts in northern Arizona. We'll even see 25 mph gusts again on Friday in the valley.

Temperatures will surge to the low 90s this weekend as a ridge pattern returns to the Desert Southwest, but another storm system and deep trough will be racing to the region early next week.

The mercury will plummet to the 70s for Monday and Tuesday with scattered showers move across Arizona. There will be a chance of rain for the Valley both days along with windy conditions. The high country could even see a rain/snow mix at times early next week. That cool down will be very short lived as we return to the 90s quickly for the second half of next week once again. 

FRIDAY: 60/85 mostly sunny & breezy

SATURDAY: 62/92 sunny, warmer & breezy

SUNDAY: 63/93 mostly sunny & windy

MONDAY: 61/77 mostly cloudy, windy & chance of rain

TUESDAY: 57/76 partly cloudy & breezy, chance of rain

WEDNESDAY: 56/86 sunny

THURSDAY: 61/94 sunny
