Showers & T-Storms linger Saturday

PHOENIX - The rain has been hit or miss so far this morning across the Valley.

For much of the morning, the bulk of the showers has centered around the East Valley -- places like Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler and Apache Junction have definitely seen some of the wet stuff! We've also seen places in the West Valley like Glendale pick up some showers.

The rain activity will be somewhat sporadic today. Most of the area will see scattered showers, but there could be some periods of heavier downpours.

We are forecasting 0.10-0.25 inches of rain today.

There's also a slight chance for a few thunderstorms, so stay alert and remember "When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors."

Umbrellas, raincoats, and rain boots will be a good idea if you're headed out to the Phoenix Open, the NFL Experience, or Super Bowl Central.

This system will bring mostly rain statewide but we could see some light snow in spots above 7,000 feet through Saturday.

Nearly a foot of snow is possible in areas above 8,500 feet where Winter Storm Warnings are posted. That includes the White Mountains.

Temperatures will be much cooler these next couple of days, as well.

We're dropping 10 to 15 degrees as Valley highs struggle to hit the low 60s today and Saturday.

The good news is that we will dry out in time for the Super Bowl. The forecast in Glendale on Sunday looks gorgeous: mostly sunny skies, light winds and a highs in the upper 60s.

And then get ready for a BIG warm-up later in the week -- a return to gorgeous, Arizona weather is on the horizon!
