PHOENIX -- After several days of wet weather, a drier and warmer weather pattern is on the way for the weekend.  The rain Thursday brought some of the coolest temperatures in the Valley since May. 

After a high of only 90 degrees yesterday, rain last night dropped temperatures overnight so that Valley residents woke up to unseasonably cool temperatures in the 60s this morning.  This afternoon, there is a very slight chance of isolated Valley storms and a forecast high of 96 degrees, which is eight degrees below average for this time of year. 

There's a decent chance of storms in the high country today, but over the weekend, drier air makes storm chances pretty slim.  The monsoon break won't last long though.  As high pressure shifts back into place next week, monsoon moisture returns, along with storm chances early next week.
