PHOENIX -- Quiet weather is on tap across the Valley for not only the rest of the weekend, but all of next week. Meanwhile, eastern Arizona is seeing isolated rain and snow showers through Saturday night.

A storm system east of the state is pumping in enough moisture to produce a few showers, stray storms and light snow along the Arizona-New Mexico border. This system is also creating breezy winds statewide.

Meanwhile, the Valley is seeing clear skies with temperatures running several degrees above normal. Saturday afternoon, Sky Harbor International Airport reported a high temperature of 80 degrees after a morning low of 54.

Sunday morning, Valley lows should dip to the upper 40s and low 50s, then rebound to the upper 70s to low 80s. We’re forecasting a high of 80 in Phoenix under sunny skies for Sunday.

Sunny to mostly sunny skies are expected for the next seven days with daytime highs right around the 80-degree mark. Overnight lows will also not see much change.

As the storm system impacting eastern Arizona tracks further east, high pressure will briefly build in behind it before another weak front tracks into northern Arizona. A slight chance of rain and snow, along with locally gusty winds is possible for the high country midweek.
