PHOENIX — Our cooler than average weather is sticking around all week as we also track another storm coming our way.
Valley highs will reach the low 70s the rest of the week, staying several degrees below the normal for this time of year.
Overnight lows will cool into the 40s each morning.
Dry conditions prevail Wednesday, but we have another storm that's moving in on Thursday.
That storm will bring gusty winds, another chance for snow up north and we could pick up a few rain showers here in the Valley.
A Wind Advisory and Blowing Dust Advisory take effect Thursday for parts of western Arizona, including the Colorado River Valley. Peak wind gusts of 45 mph are expected along with reduced visibility in dust-prone areas near Yuma and along I-8 in southwestern Arizona. Remember to "Pull Aside, Stay Alive" if you get caught in a dust storm.
At this point it looks like snow levels will drop to around 4,000 feet, with areas like Flagstaff picking up around two to four inches of snow with this storm.
The Valley could also get a few rumbles of thunder, with our best rain chances coming late Thursday night into early Friday morning.
This storm will clear out quickly and we have high pressure in place by the weekend. That's going to warm things up and we could see Valley highs back in the 80s by Sunday.
