It's another sunny and gorgeous day around Arizona with temperatures a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday.

Here in the Valley, look for highs in the low 90s with overnight lows tonight in the 60s.

We are still tracking low pressure off the coast of California, which will basically park itself there for the next couple of days before moving inland.

Expect cloud coverage to increase as it moves onshore late Wednesday and Thursday.

Temperatures will cool to the mid to upper 80s on Thursday with lows dropping to the low to mid 60s Valley-wide.

We will also have enough moisture at that point to possibly see some rain around the Valley.

Look for a 10 percent chance early Thursday. Then, we'll see a 30 percent chance of rain Thursday afternoon and evening with a 20 percent chance lingering into Friday across the Phoenix metro area.

Chances for rain will be even greater in the higher terrain with a chance of snow above 8,000 feet.

At this point, it looks like the only chance for accumulating snow will be on the highest peaks up north, above the 9,000 foot level.

Temperatures look absolutely gorgeous on Friday with Valley highs only in the mid to upper 70s.

We'll be dry again on Saturday with highs rebounding to the low 80s.

Look for sunny skies again on Sunday with highs warming to the upper 80s as we finish out the weekend.
