PHOENIX — A storm system is moving through Arizona, bringing wind, rain and snow.

Rain and snow showers continue across northern Arizona and chances for rain here in the Valley continue through the night..

The showers will be hit or miss, but a few spots may see around a tenth of an inch of rain.

Even a few lightning strikes and rumbles of thunder can't be ruled out this evening.

Up north, snowfall accumulations will be light with most spots between 5,000 and 6,500 feet in elevation picking up less than an inch of snow.

Flagstaff, and other spots at 6,500 feet in elevation or higher, could get one to three inches of snow.

Winds will get breezy across northern Arizona and here in the Valley today, too.

Gusts will stay between 15-20 mph in Phoenix before backing off tonight.

Chances for rain and snow will continue into Sunday morning before this storm starts to clear out on Sunday evening.

We are looking dry again across Arizona next week.

Valley highs will top out in the upper 60s through the weekend with 70s back in play next week.
