It has been a wet Wednesday and Thursday in Phoenix, as rain showers soaked parts of the Valley and snow and high winds hit the high country.

By lunchtime, Wednesday, Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix had already seen 0.01" of rain. That was the first measurable rainfall since Jan. 10.

As of Thursday morning, rainfall totals of nearly a third of an inch hit other parts of Phoenix like Dysart and Bell roads.

Clouds moved in early Wednesday morning, making for some ominous skies.

This winter storm is bringing some good news to skiers in the high country.

Snow in northern Arizona continued to fall during the day, with even more falling overnight and into Thursday morning.

We saw cooler than average temperatures on Valentine's Day. The average temps this week are usually in the 70s and we are in the 60s.

As for this weekend? Nothing but sunshine. We'll be back in the sunny 70s for Saturday and Sunday.
