Not a bad start to the morning with temperatures in the 60s under partly cloudy skies. We also experienced a few sprinkles and some virga this morning.
The cause is from a cold front beginning to make its way into Arizona Sunday night through Tuesday. High temperatures will drop quite a bit.
Winds are also expected to pick up today across Arizona, with a Wind Advisory in effect starting at 9 a.m. in the high country, including the Flagstaff area. Look or southwesterly winds between 25 and 35 miles per hour, gusting to 55 miles per hour. Blowing dust is possible statewide today, including in the Valley, where winds should be near 15-25 miles per hour by this afternoon. Fire danger will be high statewide.
For the Valley, rain chances are weak at 10 to 20 percent overnight tonight through Monday evening.
In the mountains, rainfall totals will range from 0.50" to 1.50, mainly in Eastern Arizona. They could see some snow above 6,000 feet. The bulk of this snow will fall on Monday but could linger into Tuesday morning.
Morning lows in the Valley in the 60s Sunday morning will drop to the 50s for Monday morning and then into the 40s by Tuesday and Wednesday mornings!
Later this week, temperatures will be back to the 80s by Thursday and continue on that trend through next weekend. On Halloween, look for a high of 87 degrees, with trick-or-treat temperatures in the 70s.
