PHOENIX -- The Valley of the Sun won’t be so sunny for part two of the weekend as a storm system churning to the west brings changes to our weather pattern.

High clouds are filling the sky Sunday thanks to a moist southwesterly flow of subtropical moisture from an area of low pressure that’s retrograding off the central California coastline. This cloud cover will take the edge off our heat Sunday afternoon. Phoenix is looking at high of around 92 degrees.

Moving into Sunday night, models introduce shower chances for Arizona. While we’re not expecting a wash out, the Valley could see some rain anytime after 11 p.m. Sunday and through Monday morning. The best chances for rain will be in the northeastern portion of Arizona, along with the south central portion of the state.

Along with rain chances, temperatures will cool by five to eight degrees for afternoon highs on back to work Monday. Phoenix is looking at a high of 84 degrees.

Unsettled weather will continue Tuesday through Thursday as small disturbances are pushed east in our direction. Another small chance of showers is in the forecast for Tuesday in the Valley. There’s also another chance for isolated thunderstorms.

The mountains will have the best opportunity to see a few showers most days next week.

Temperatures in the Valley will remain in the 80s for highs through Thursday. The 90s make a comeback for Friday and into next weekend.
