PHOENIX -- A cold front moving through Arizona ushered in a few weather changes for the new week.

Monday morning, breezy and cooler conditions were observed across the state. In the Valley, winds were generally between 10 and 15 miles per hour out of the north and northeast. Those winds could get stronger during the late morning and early afternoon hours before easing up by late afternoon and evening.

Temperatures are expected to peak near 85 degrees Monday afternoon in the Valley under sunny skies. Tonight, clear skies can be expected and overnight lows will dip to between 50 and 60 degrees around the Valley by Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon will be a bit warmer with a forecast high of 90 degrees.

Another round of breezy weather arrives Wednesday, but skies will stay mostly clear and temperatures peak in the low 90s.

Easter weekend is looking warm and mostly dry across Arizona. At this point, there is a slight chance of rain on Saturday, but dry weather is expected on Sunday with morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s and a high Sunday afternoon of about 91 degrees.
