Weather Outlook This Week: Mostly Sunny, Warmer Flagstaff National Weather Service, from Twitter

It’s going to be beautiful – until Thursday

Big Idea

  • Mostly sunny and warm through Wednesday
  • Thursday through the weekend, breezy and cooler
  • Slight chance of rain or snow over the weekend
  • Less than an inch of snow in Prescott
  •


This week’s weather will be up and down!


Forecast Summary: 

Expect mostly sunny skies and warm weather through Thursday. Highs in the lower 60s to lower 70s, with the warmest weather on Wednesday. Lows rising from the upper 20s today to the lower 40s on Thursday. 

Thursday through the weekend, expect breezy conditions, with afternoon winds 20-30 mph and a cooling trend, with a chance of light rain or snow showers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Morning lows dropping back into the upper 20s afternoon highs in the lower 50s. Light snow accumulation possible, but generally less than 1” for the Prescott area.

A strong ridge over the Southwest will bring mostly sunny and mild conditions through Thursday, but we may see some high clouds as an upper-level low today  and then a trough on Thursday pass through the ridge. Expect breezes to start to develop on Thursday as the ridge moves east and pressure gradients build up.  

For Friday – Sunday a series of troughs will swing across northern Arizona, bringing partly to mostly cloudy skies, cooling the temperatures back down, and producing breezes and scattered light rain or snow showers each day. There is currently low confidence in the timing of these troughs in the forecast models…but there is confidence in a cooling trend and breezy conditions over the coming weekend.
