A major weather pattern shift arrives this week with colder temperatures, rain and snow. Thunderstorms are also possible.
Today looks to be our quiet and warm with a Valley high forecast near 85 degrees.
Rain begins tomorrow, with rain becoming more likely Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. We may get a break sometime during the day Wednesday before storm number two moves our way. This storm will be colder, and snow levels are expected to be near 6500 to 7000 feet in the high country with several inches of snow possible in areas above that.
One to two inches of rain is possible over the next few days in Phoenix, with more than 4 inches possible in Southern Gila County.
Colder temperatures are on the way with upper 70s Tuesday, upper 60s Wednesday and low 60s by Thursday. The wet weather looks to wind down Friday with a dry weekend to follow.
