PHOENIX -- A series of three fast-moving weather systems will pass across Arizona in the next two days. Each will bring chances for rain and snow and cooler temperatures. But right now, the strongest of the disturbances, which is due in Wednesday afternoon, could produce around ¼” of rain around metro Phoenix.

Snow levels will be around 5,000 feet, but we’re trending away from a huge snow event. 2-4” for most locations at 6,500 feet is becoming more likely for most locations, with the exception of the White Mountains. A plume of moisture could bring perhaps 8-12” of snow there.

Temperatures are going to stay unseasonably cool right through the weekend. But at this point, the weekend does look dry in the Valley, with only slight chances for precipitation in the mountains of our state.
