Is that you, fall? Cooler weather, chance of rain to blow into Phoenix over weekend
PHOENIX — Things will feel a little more like fall — at least in the Phoenix sense — this weekend when cooler weather and a chance for rain blow into the Valley.
The National Weather Service called for a high of 96 degrees with clear skies on Friday. By Monday, the forecast changes to a high of 87 degrees and possible wet weather.
“We’ll start seeing a slight chance of showers primarily starting late afternoon and increasing overnight Sunday and then our best chances of rain will be during the day Monday,” Austin Jamison with the weather service said.
Though chances of rain will be about 30 percent, Jamison said people should not expect anything outside of a small shower.
“Probably, overall, we’re looking at under a quarter-inch,” he said.
Though highs will nearly drop 10 degrees, low temperatures are expected to remain the same. Friday’s low is expected to by 67 and Monday’s is the same.
The weather should move out of the area by Tuesday, but will keep things slightly cooler. Highs should hover around 90 degrees through Thursday.
