PHOENIX -- Friday morning was our coldest morning in the Valley since January after temperatures dropped to the upper 20s in parts of town.

Sky Harbor officially got down to 36 degrees. Temperatures will only warm to the mid 50s today and aren't expected to be much warmer over the weekend.

Skies will stay clear today, but a storm approaches Saturday. Temperatures will start out in the upper 20s to low 30s Saturday before peaking in the mid 50s with a slight chance of rain during the day.  There's a 60 percent chance of rain Saturday night, with a slight chance for showers continuing through midday Sunday. 

Sunday will be much cooler behind the storm, with mostly sunny skies by the afternoon, but temperatures struggling to climb into the low 50s. 

Next week looks dry but cold with more overnight lows in the 20s and 30s. 

In the high country, snow will begin tomorrow, picking up late Saturday and into Sunday morning.  A couple of inches of snow are expected above 5,000 feet, and 4 to 6 inches of snow are possible in elevations above 7,000 feet like Flagstaff.
