A weak storm system will be passing to our north on Tuesday, bringing cooler air our way.
We could see a few spotty showers across northern Arizona, but our Valley forecast will stay dry.
Winds will pick up, too. Across northern Arizona, peak wind gusts could top 30 mph Tuesday afternoon.
Valley winds will stay light, but clouds will move through Tuesday morning and temperatures will drop around 5 degrees.

As high pressure returns, we will get warmer by the end of the week.
Highs across the Valley will top out in the mid-80s on Thursday for Veterans Day and we'll stay there heading into the weekend, too.
