Showers are spreading west to east across our state as low pressure moves in.

Snowfall amounts have been light so far, but snow and rain showers will pick up in intensity tonight.

We're looking at the potential of one to three inches above 5,000 feet and two to four inches above 6,500 feet. However, some of the spots near west-facing slopes could see as much as six inches of snow by Friday afternoon.

Forecasted snow totals:

Flagstaff: 2-5"

Grand Canyon South Rim: 3-5"

Heber: 1-3"

Payson: 1"

Prescott: 1-3"

Show Low: 1-3"

St. Johns: up to 1"

Window Rock: 2-5"

Winslow: up to 1"

Here in the Valley, a 20 percent chance of rain will kick in tonight with our best bet for measureable rainfall between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Friday. It's really not looking very significant though, with most spots at less than a tenth of an inch.

By Friday evening, our skies will clear out across the entire state as this storm exits east.

Then, high pressure rules again as we head through the weekend and into next week.

Highs will quickly climb back into the low 70s this weekend before reaching the mid 70s in Phoenix next week.
