PHOENIX — Phoenix hit the 70s for the first time this year on Friday.
Temperatures will dip slightly over the weekend as a storm system passes to our north. That will put Phoenix back in the upper 60s on Saturday as clouds move in.
As that storm system passes through the Four Corners, we could see a few spotty rain and snow showers across northern Arizona.
Then, high pressure returns and Valley temperatures will be back in the low 70s early next week.
The weather becomes pretty unsettled after that with two potential storm systems headed our way next week.
Expect lots of cloud coverage and maybe even a few spotty showers by as early as Monday night.
Valley rain chances and higher terrain snow chances will increase through midweek. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
Air quality will continue to be an issue in the early morning hours as particle pollution settles over the Valley. If you have any respiratory issues, limit your time outside between 5 and 10 a.m.
