A ridge of high pressure centered to the west of Arizona continues to be our controlling weather factor, allowing seasonal temperatures for the next several days. By the weekend, a weak storm system passing to the north of the state will bring us some breezes to northern AZ, but no rain or snow. And even as Thanksgiving approaches, another dry storm system will sweep to the north of Arizona.
The Thanksgiving weekend will signal a change in the overall weather pattern which seems destined to bring us some rain and snow either by late in the holiday weekend or during the last week of November. We’ve received no rain in Phoenix this month.
Look for highs in the mid-70s into the middle of next week and then for Thanksgiving Day itself, mostly sunny with highs in the low-70s around metro Phoenix.
