Temperatures will be start dropping into the low 60s Monday.

Another low pressure system is moving across Northern California and is approaching Arizona. It will move in on Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day, bringing more wind and a chance for rain and snow, mainly for northern and eastern Arizona. The Valley will have cloudy skies, but the rain will stay away from us as the storm passes quickly across the state.

There's an 70 percent chance of snow in the high country. So, it will be a white Christmas in places like Flagstaff and the White Mountains this year!

Santa should have no major weather disturbances to deal with as he enters Arizona on Christmas Eve. The Desert Doppler Weather Center will be busy on Christmas Eve tracking Santa sightings, so be sure to watch ABC15 News for the latest updates and reports.

Areas above 6,000 ft. will see about an inch of new snow

Back here in the Valley for Christmas, temperatures will be dropping down to 62 degrees on Christmas Day and we will have some clouds, but no rain.
