PHOENIX - Our first big fall blast is moving in.
Winds will pick up across our state on Saturday as temperatures drop 10 to 15 degrees.
Valley winds will get breezy, with gusts near 25 mph, but up north winds will howl with peak gusts as high as 50 mph. Wind Advisories are in effect along the Mogollon Rim and areas northeast of there through the day Saturday.
Watch out for blowing dust and reduced visibility as the winds kick up around the state.
Scattered showers will track across northern Arizona Saturday and Sunday.
The snow level will drop to 6,500 feet by Sunday afternoon, bringing the chance of a light dusting to Flagstaff.
Most of the rain and snow this weekend will stay north of Phoenix, but we do have a 20 percent chance for a few showers across the Valley on Sunday.
Temperatures take a nose dive through the weekend.
Look for highs to drop to the low 80s Saturday. Then, the cool-down will continue, taking us to the low 70s on Sunday and Monday.
