The system moves in tonight through Sunday. Bringing a chance for showers in the Valley as early as 6AM. Activity will be light and scattered for most of Sunday. Right now models are showing anywhere from a trace to .25" if rain possible in the Valley. 

As for the high country, the best chances for snow will be in the higher elevations of the White Mountains, with places like Alpine potentially getting 3" to 6" of snow through early Monday. Flagstaff could see about 1". Snow levels will dip to about 5000 ft, mainly across the eastern Mogollon Rim and the southeastern White Mountains.

Behind this system, the coolest temperatures of the season are set to arrive Sunday and Monday, before a slight warm up Tuesday and Wednesday. Another trough is expected to drop temperatures again next Thursday and Friday.
