PHOENIX -- A ridge of high pressure will be in place for the remainder of the week for the West Coast. That will bring us a continuation of warm and dry weather.

Highs for the next couple of days will be in the low 80s and overnight lows will be in the 50s.

Some changes are in store for the weekend as a trough of low pressure digs south into Arizona. For sure, that’s going to bring us some cooler conditions and breeziness at times. But the changes for precipitation are still looking pretty limited.

On Saturday in the Valley, expect highs to drop into the mid-70s, and by Sunday, we’ll be in the low 70s.

Into early next week, the forecast models are not in good agreement, but it looks like we’ll continue with temps in the low 70s, with clouds passing overhead from time to time.

There is a slight chance for some rain and snow in northern and eastern Arizona beginning Sunday.
