PHOENIX -- It’s going to be a cool and windy end to your weekend.

A mostly dry cold front pushed off to our southeast early Sunday morning. Behind it, a colder airmass moved in, along with rather strong northwesterly winds. The Valley may see wind gusts clock in at about 30 miles per hour, with sustained winds at 10 to 20 miles per hour throughout the afternoon. The strongest winds are expected in the southeast portion of Arizona.

Meanwhile, snow showers should taper off this afternoon in the mountains. The eastern Mogollon Rim and White Mountains will be left with totals ranging from two to five inches.

Blustery winds will also have a grip on the high country, and at times, producing wind chills in the teens.

Valley highs will be in the low 60s Sunday afternoon with sunny skies. Low temperatures Monday morning will dip into the upper 30s. We may see some isolated pockets of freezing temperatures in rural Valley areas.

Rain stays out of the forecast for the next work week and weekend. While Valley afternoon highs remain in the 60s Monday, expect a gradual warming, with the 70s returning by mid week.
