Weekend storm brings chance of rain

Posted: Updated:

It looks to be a mostly cloudy Veterans Day in the Valley of the Sun.  Still, temperatures will warm to the mid 70s this afternoon.  Overnight low's will dip to the 50's.  An approaching storm system is helping to pull the thick layer of clouds into Arizona, but the storm itself looks like it will likely push by to our south this weekend.  The low pressure system is currently off the coast of California, and as it tracks across Northern Mexico this weekend, we'll see an increasing chance of showers starting Saturday night through Monday morning.  Current rain chances for that time period are at about 30 percent, with the Valley expecting to get about one-tenth of an inch of precipitation.  High temperatures will drop to the upper 60s Sunday, but overnight lows will stay in the mid 40s to mid 50s.  The storm isn't a very wet or cold one, and that means snow levels in the high country could stay fairly high, near 7500 feet.  After the storm moves out on Monday, temperatures are expected to warm back into the mid 70s next week.
