Hello? Winter? Are you there? That's what many Arizonans are saying this week with our beautiful temperatures. 

The warming trend all thanks to an area of high pressure that is keeping storms out of Arizona for now. 

 This week temperatures will slowly climb and we could see our first 80 degree day of the year on Thursday. 

That's actually a bit later than normal.  On average, we see our first 80 degree day on February 3rd.  That's based on the 30-year average.  For the all-time average, that date is closer to February 12.  

A disturbance brushing to the north of the state tonight and into early tomorrow will kick up breezes in the high country and bring a few high clouds into Arizona from time to time.

Temperatures will start to come down over the weekend as a storm system approaches Arizona.  

 There is a chance of rain in the Valley Saturday, with a chance of rain and snow in the mountains.  We'll keep you updated throughout the week on rain and snow chances, along with potential totals.
