MOST ACCURATE FORECAST: Rain chances return this week!

and last updated 2021-01-17 22:34:49-05

Our warm-up continues through the holiday with Valley highs in the mid 70s.

Starting on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, clouds will increase statewide ahead of our next storm system.

This storm will linger for several days, meaning rain and high country snow chances stick around starting Tuesday and last through the weekend.

It will drop temperatures and increase winds, too.

Rainfall amounts look fairly light in the Valley, with some spots picking up one-tenth of an inch of rain through Wednesday.

High country snowfall amounts will range from one to four inches above 5,500 feet.

The storm storm system rolls through starting Thursday, but there's still uncertainty regarding rain and snowfall totals with that storm. Stay tuned with ABC 15 for updates!

Even with these rain and snow chances in the forecast, the outlook over the next three months continues to show a good chance of warmer than normal and drier than normal conditions on average across Arizona as La Ni˜na continues.

This means our drought could still get worse.

All of Arizona is in a drought right now and 73 percent of our state, including the Phoenix area, is in Exceptional Drought (the worst kind).
