Dry and mild Christmas in the Valley

PHOENIX - High pressure is keeping things dry and mild in the Valley of the Sun.

A weak cold front will swing across our state Tuesday dropping highs a couple of degrees, but our forecast will stay dry. The front will kick up some breezes with Valley gusts near 20 mph and gusts near 35 mph up north.

Winds lighten up on Christmas Eve before storm system moves in on Christmas Day.

Expect more clouds around the Valley on Christmas with highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Up north, it could be a white Christmas for Flagstaff with the snow shower chances moving into the White Mountains Thursday night and Friday. We're not expecting a major snow storm, but rather chances for a few light snow showers with less than an inch of accumulation.

Conditions will also get a bit windy in the high country Thursday and Friday as the storm system moves through.

Here in the Valley, sunshine will return next weekend with highs in the low 60s.

Merry Christmas!
