PHOENIX -- The weather disturbance due into Arizona on Friday looks like it’s going to be pretty weak.

While we expect mostly cloudy conditions and rather breezy times across the state, precipitation, in the form of rain and snow, will be very light.

In the Valley, that chance for showers Friday afternoon is only running at about 10 percent. Flagstaff will see some snow showers, but an inch of snow or less is expected.

This will be a rather cold storm in the north with the snow level at about 6,000 feet. Nevertheless, there’s just not much moisture to produce any significant snow, even at the highest elevations of our state.

The storm will move through pretty quickly, and the weekend is looking nice, with lots of sunshine and highs in the low 70s around metro Phoenix.

And next week will feature a slow warming trend as we head toward Thanksgiving Day. And while most of the country deals with the deep freeze over the holiday, we’re forecasting highs in the mid-70s on Thanksgiving Day for the Valley.
