Temperatures rise as high pressure builds in

PHOENIX - It turned out to be a nice, but cloudy, end to Saturday.

We'll look for another quiet and dry night ahead with lows in the 30s and 40s. Clouds will move through the overnight hours but no rain is expected.

There's a chance for fog across northeastern Arizona through Sunday morning. Visibility could be down to 1/4 of a mile at times.

Temperatures are back on the rise in the Valley as we head toward Christmas.

For the first day of winter (Sunday), we'll see some passing high clouds with temperatures near 67 in Phoenix.

By Monday, high pressure takes over sending temperatures back into the 70s.

We'll hold onto highs in the low 70s through Christmas day with overnight lows dropping into the mid to upper 40s each morning.

There's a slight chance for light snow across the high country Wednesday into Thursday as a disturbance moves through the state. The Valley stays dry.
