got the wind shield wipers going. that's where we've seen a mix of pockets of heavier rainfall, and these possibilities of heavier rain, you could encounter if you're driving around maybe tonight, or even heading into work tomorrow. so the rain, and rain chances continue. most of the valley right now is dry. we did have some light rainfall through central and west phoenix, but the bulk of the rain so far all showers, no lightning within this. we're going to continue to see batches of rainfall. eventually spread further east into the phoenix area, so we are in for more widespread rainfall as we go into later this evening, and through the overnight hours into tomorrow as well. that moisture pumps into our state ahead of our next storm system. we've got a cold front that's
this is round one of those showers. the cold front still off to our west, eventually as it moves in it will keep those rain chances elevated, as we go into our monday. your prep list, plan on those widespread showers as we go into tonight. the cold front will move into monday. tomorrow, we're talking more rainfall, especially through the morning. possibly isolated thunderstorms, and there's even going to be some snow in some of our higher elevations, once as you look at futurecast with me, again, we're looking at widespread showers. as we go into tonight, they should be light to moderate at times. like we're seeing right now, just out to our west. the main batch will push east into that 10:00, 11:00 hour, with more scattered showers after that. by tomorrow morning, we could start to see those showers redevelop a little more widespread across the valley in time for the morning commute, continuing through midday
into the evening, we'll start to taper off those chances gradually across the valley. that's when the colder air sets in, and any lingering moisture will transition that rain into snow across the higher at the rain. the snowfall likely by tomorrow evening new york city the early nighttime hours before we start to dry things out going into tuesday. in the likely range tonight, and also tonight, here's that hour by hour break down. i do think that peaks around 7:00 to 8:00 to 9:00 tonight. a 70% chance for rain between about 7:00 and 10:00 tomorrow morning, but notice how those rain chances then start to taper off by tomorrow afternoon into the evening. as far as rain amounts, i think much of the valley could end up with a about a -- about a half inch of rain in spots. especially along those
in spots lake cave creek, possibly potentially apache junction. there's a chance we could end up with 2 inches of snow in places like flagstaff by tuesday morning. anywhere above 7,000 feet has that potential. a high of only 68 degrees for monday. upper 60s on tuesday, then we're back into the 70s by thanksgiving. an thanksgiving too. hey, i want to remind you, of course, we can all use extra cash for the holidays. abc15 is giving away $500 every weeknight. you've got to watch for that weather word of the day for your chance to win. we've all talked about must win games for the last several weeks or so.
