After a cool start to our Thursday, the afternoon warmed up to 70 degrees. Our average high this time of year is 66, so that is 4 degrees above normal. We will also see plenty of sunshine tomorrow.
A storm system will pass northern Arizona later Saturday into Sunday. This will drop our temps from the 70s to the 60s in Phoenix, and bring some rain and snow to the high country.
Most of the moisture will stay north of Interstate 40, first starting as rain Saturday, and then changing to snow in the overnight hours. Snow accumulations will be limited, but the roads maybe slick on Sunday.
Here in the Valley, we will stay dry with temperatures staying in the 60s through next Thursday.
Every year, the Christmas Angel program serves more than 50,000 children across Arizona, providing toys and necessities for those who normally would go without during the holidays. We ask you to come find one of the Christmas Angel trees, pick an angel tag off the tree, shop for the gifts and return them to the Salvation Army. It’s that easy to “earn you wings.” The angel program runs through Dec. 22, so time is running out.
