PHOENIX -- As we finish up day 33 without any rain in metro Phoenix, we’re looking at some slightly cooler temperatures over the next several days.

The reason? An area of low pressure is moving down the Rockies and will drop into New Mexico Thursday and Friday, bringing that state some widely scattered rain and snow.

We’re just going to get the slightly cooler temperatures, especially in northern and eastern parts of Arizona.

By Friday, highs will dip into the low 70s, which is still above average. But by the weekend, we’ll be back in the mid-to-upper 70s.
