PHOENIX -- A cold front that brought gusty winds to the state Tuesday is leaving behind a much cooler air mass.
Valley residents woke up to temperatures in the mid to upper 40s Wednesday morning.
We'll see lighter winds, mostly sunny skies and a high of only 73 degrees Wednesday afternoon.
Overnight lows will be even cooler Wednesday night, when temperatures should dip to the low 40s to low 50s around town by Thursday morning.
On Halloween we'll see sunshine and a high in the upper 70s before temperatures drop off to the 60s for trick-or-treating.
Overnight lows will stay in the 40s and 50s through the weekend as afternoon highs move back into the 80s.
Light snow was falling Wednesday morning in the high country, with ice and snow reported on both Interstate 40 and Interstate 17.
Residents had a dusting of snow on their lawns, too. Light snow is possible throughout the day in the high country before the weather disturbance moves out and skies clear.
Another storm is forecast for Sunday and Monday, but the Valley should stay dry.
