A hot Saturday before the storm

0

PHOENIX – Highs will hit the mid 80s today putting us several degrees above normal for this time of year.

Clouds will also move ahead of our next storm which arrives on Sunday. This will bring more wind, cooler air, and even a chance of rain and snow.

Temperatures will drop 10 to 15 degrees in our state, which will put valley highs in the mid-70s tomorrow.

We will also see a chance of patchy showers across the state, which could include more snow showers for higher elevations.

Right now the accumulations look light with less than an inch of snow for spots like Flagstaff and less than 0.05″ of rain for the Valley, mostly falling on Sunday evening.

Our forecast is drying up on Monday as this storm heads east, but winds will remain gusty through the middle of next week.

Temperatures will gradually rebound with highs dating back to the 80s by Tuesday and flirting with the 90s by next Friday.
