PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Big weather changes are coming as another storm system hits the state for the start of the work week, bringing rain, snow, wind, and cooler temperatures to Arizona!

Look for a high of 74 today under mostly cloudy skies and breezy conditions. The Valley should stay dry today and tomorrow before the rain moves in on Tuesday. There will be multiple waves of rain passing through the Phoenix area starting on Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday. Arizona’s Family is calling for a First Alert Weather Day on Tuesday because of the rain, flooding, and snow.

For northern Arizona, look for a slight chance of rain and snow showers today with breezy conditions. More widespread rain and snow will start Monday and continue into Thursday. It looks like the heaviest precipitation will fall on Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ll also see windy conditions up north. A flood warning has been issued for Maricopa County from March 18 until March 25, caused by upstream dam releases and snowmelt. Officials say the Salt and Gila Rivers and areas along El Mirage Road near Avondale are very likely to flood. In the East Valley, ongoing water released from Tempe Town Lake is causing low-water crossings to be flooded as of Sunday afternoon.
