PHOENIX -- Seasonably warm temperatures continue into Sunday afternoon, with clouds increasing ahead of a storm system that’s set to bring changes to Arizona’s weather pattern.

Look for mostly clear to partly cloudy skies for your Saturday night in the Valley. Phoenix should see the mid 60s for Sunday morning’s low temperatures. We’ll warm up Sunday afternoon to a high of 93 as high thin clouds fill the sky.

An area of low pressure that’s retrograding off the central California coastline will push in a southerly flow of subtropical moisture from the Pacific. By Sunday night, rain chances enter the forecast, starting off in northeastern Arizona. We’ve only got a 10 to 20 percent chance of rain statewide, but the Valley could certainly see a brief shower anytime between Sunday night and Monday morning.

Under partly cloudy skies, afternoon temperatures are also set to cool down to levels below seasonal averages. We should see highs in the mid 80s for the Valley not only Monday but through most of next week. Enjoy it!

With low pressure hanging out off the coastline, small disturbances will continue to pump into our area, keeping some cloud cover around and a slight chance of mountain showers each day through Thursday.
