Breezy Weekend Brings Mild Temperatures to Arizona Valley
The weekend in the Arizona Valley has been breezy but mild, with morning temperatures ranging from the 40s to 50s and climbing to the low 70s in the afternoon.
Despite some areas experiencing close to 15 mph winds, no wind advisory has been issued.
The state is also experiencing below-average temperatures for this time of year, and most of it remains dry as the region awaits the arrival of two systems that could bring significant precipitation.
On Monday, the first of these systems is expected to hit Northern Arizona, with a slight chance of showers in the White Mountains during the afternoon and evening hours.
On Tuesday, the threat of widespread rain becomes more likely, with models predicting close to an inch of rainfall in the Valley.
The High Country may also experience either rain or snow, depending on when the colder air arrives.
Overall, the coming storm is expected to be a nice spring storm, ushering in the official start of spring on Monday with partly cloudy and quiet conditions in the mid-70s.
However, it is important to keep an eye on the weather as heavy rain could lead to flooding across the state.
