PHOENIX — High pressure over the desert southwest will control our weather pattern through the early part of the week, meaning dry conditions and above normal temperatures.
Daily highs will be in the low 70s in the Valley with the First day of Winter the warmest of the week at 72.
After that cloudy and breezy conditions move in ahead of the next round of storms.
A winter storm hits Arizona and will bring more rain, snow, and cooler temperatures Thursday and Friday.
Right now it looks like things will start drying out Christmas morning.
