PHOENIX -- Unsettled weather will be the story into the new work week as a series of Pacific storms track into Arizona, bringing Valley rain and mountain snow by midweek.

On the heels of a weather system that moved into the state Saturday, the Valley saw sunny skies and cool temperatures Sunday afternoon. The official high at Phoenix Sky Harbor was 63 after a morning low of 46. The seasonal average high for this date is 66.

Monday will start off in the 40s under partly cloudy skies around the Valley then rebound to afternoon highs in the mid-60s. Clouds will increase throughout the day ahead of a weak storm system. The chance for rain and snow is possible across Arizona as early as Tuesday evening.

Another stronger storm will move into Arizona Wednesday. The bulk of the Valley rain and mountain snow will move in Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. Snow levels are expected to dip to 5,500 feet with accumulating snow above 6,000 feet. Daytime highs across the Phoenix metro will remain in the 60s with lows in the 40s for the remainder of the week.
