PHOENIX -- A cold front dropping across northern Arizona has brought some cooler temperatures to the state. Most of the cooling has been in the northern and eastern portions of the state. Those “cooler” temps are still going to be running about 10 degrees above normal to finish out the week.

An area of low pressure is working its way south along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains from Colorado into New Mexico. The storm will bring a bit of snow and rain to New Mexico and some breezy conditions to Arizona. In fact, the mountains will be windy at times over the next couple of days.

Valley highs are expected to be right around 80 degrees through the end of the week. Then as the New Mexico storm continues southward into Mexico, high pressure will reassert itself and we’ll get a warming trend for the weekend.

Toward the end of the weekend, a cold front approaches from the Pacific. That system will bring us cooler temps and a chance for scattered showers on Monday.
