We have gone 50 days now without any measurable rainfall, finally there is rain in the forecast. A series of low pressure systems will move into Arizona with rain and cooler weather.
We have a weak system that will bring a few clouds today and Saturday, but no rain is expected from these clouds and afternoon highs will remain five to ten degrees above normal.
The sun will return Sunday and Monday, but by Tuesday, a low pressure system will dig down from the northwest and will mix with the moist low near Baja. There is a good chance for rain late Tuesday thru Friday.
As of this update, forecast models indicate one to two inches of rain possible for the Valley, with higher amounts for the mountains north of Phoenix. This will be a warmer storm, so snow won't be an issue in the high country.
Have a great weekend.
