Chilly start to the day, warmer afternoon

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- After a chilly start, Tuesday will be a bit warmer than Monday, with more sunshine, too. 

In the wake of Monday's early winter storm, overnight lows dropped to the mid 30s Tuesday morning under clear skies. Afternoon highs should warm to about 66 degrees during the afternoon, with sunshine in the forecast across the state. Still, that's well below the average for Tuesday's date, 79 degrees.  

A ridge of high pressure will move toward us from the west, bringing more sunshine and warmer afternoons in the 70s for the rest of the workweek. 

Over the weekend, another storm looks likely, with rain forecast for the Valley and more snow for the high country. 

At this point, rain looks most likely for Saturday, with a slight chance continuing into Sunday and Monday.  Temperatures will drop off, too, with highs returning to the mid 60s. 

The forecast could change as the low pressure system gets closer. The Forecasters will continue to update the rain and snow chances as we get a better idea of what this next storm will do.
