Slightly warmer days ahead, rain in the forecast?

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Partly cloudy conditions will continue Saturday night and into Sunday, and there's even a chance of showers in our forecast.

The high in Phoenix Saturday was 70 degrees, which is about three degrees above our average for this time of year. The overnight low was 54, well above the norm of 43 degrees.

A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect Sunday through Wednesday for areas above 7,500 feet.

We'll be a bit on the warm side in the Valley for the next couple of days with highs hitting 73 or 74 degrees. There's a chance of showers Wednesday and Thursday. Those should clear out by Christmas Eve on Friday.
