PHOENIX -- A winter storm will move through Arizona on Thursday and Friday, bringing cooler and unsettled weather to the state. 

It's not the strongest of winter storms, and there are no weather watches or warnings up ahead of the storm. 

The Valley is in for a gray day, with mostly cloudy skies and sprinkles possible. 

Temperatures will peak below normal at about 64 degrees Thursday afternoon. 

Rain chances increase overnight when the Valley has a 30 percent chance of light rain, with chances continuing into Friday morning. 

By Friday afternoon, the storm moves east, leaving behind partly cloudy skies and a high of about 67 degrees. 

The high country could see snow as early as Thursday afternoon, with the snow level around 5,000 feet.

Areas above 6,000 feet could see two to six inches of snow, including Flagstaff and towns along the Mogollon Rim and in the White Mountains. Most of that snow will fall overnight Thursday into Friday morning. 

Dry and slightly warmer weather is on tap for the weekend, when the Valley will see partly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s Saturday and mid 70s Sunday and into early next week. Overnight lows are expected to be in the 40s.
