PHOENIX — The monsoon season is over but rain is back in the forecast for metro Phoenix to begin the week.

There is a 50% chance of rain beginning Monday night before increasing to a 70% chance during the day on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain chances drop to 20% as the evening goes on Tuesday before clearing out during the overnight hours.

The high is expected to reach 97 degrees on Monday before dropping 10 degrees during the expected rainy weather on Tuesday.

High temperatures are projected to remain around the high 80’s or low 90’s for the remainder of the week and into the weekend.

It was a wet monsoon season for the Valley with 23 days of rainfall from June 15 to Oct. 1, the National Weather Service said, falling one day short of the record that was set in 1896.

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport received 4.20 inches of rain during the monsoon season, the most since 6.34 inches fell in 2014 and third-most in the past two decades.

The rain was a welcome sight for Valley residents after only 1.66 inches of rain fell during the previous two monsoon seasons combined, much less than the average of 2.43 inches.
