Phoenix weather: Spring storm brings more unsettled weatherPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- A spring storm will bring more windy and wet weather to Arizona Tuesday. As the center of the storm moves further away from Arizona, a few weather disturbances will rotate through Arizona on the tail end of the system. That could mean some isolated rain and snow showers throughout the day and strong westerly winds.
In the Valley, look for westerly winds between 10 and 25 mph by the afternoon hours. A Health Watch was issued by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality for the high number of particulates, or dust, in the air.
Cooler temperatures are expected today, with Valley highs peaking in the low 70s. Winds should begin to calm down overnight with low temperatures expected in the 40s and 50s.
A slow warm-up and dry weather is expected for the rest of the week ahead.
As of Tuesday morning, most Valley locations had about 0.1 inch of rain from the storm. In the high country, snow totals ranged from about 1.5 inches in Flagstaff to 4 inches in the White Mountains.
