PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Cloudy and a bit cooler for your Wednesday after a warm start to the day. Our overnight low at Phoenix Sky Harbor was 69 degrees, breaking the warmest low record of 62 degrees set back in 2013. A steady stream of moisture rolling up from the south will give the Valley a good shot at some very light rain on Wednesday night, overnight and into the morning hours. Rainfall amounts should be minimal across the Valley but heavier amounts may occur in the upslope areas. This rain could impact the Thursday morning commute. Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day. There are no watches or warnings state-wide at this point and we do not expect any severe weather from this system.

A second round of wet weather is possible late Thursday into Friday morning, with rain chances near 40% for this round. Once again, rainfall amounts should be fairly light. Friday is also a First Alert Weather Day. However, rain will not dominate the day, with a rather long break between the light showers. Friday late night, rain chances increase and continue into Saturday morning. Saturday is also a First Alert Weather Day. This third round of potential wet weather looks a bit more focused on the higher elevations of our state, but snow should be reserved for only the highest-elevation mountain tops. Temperatures will cool down across the state over the weekend ahead. At this point, any rain or snow looks to wind down by late Saturday afternoon. This is still a cut-off low system, so timing, track and rainfall amounts are constantly changing, but we will keep you updated on the latest changes here on
