PHOENIX — People may finally have to grab a jacket out of the closet after a warm month of November as temperatures in metro Phoenix are expected to drop this week and rain chances make a return to the forecast.

A high temperature of 77 degrees will start the week on Monday before a drop to the low 70’s Tuesday through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain chances begin to make an appearance beginning during the day on Thursday with a 30% chance of precipitation before increasing to a 70% chance Thursday night.

Showers remain in the forecast during the day on Friday with a 50% chance of rain while the high temperature is expected to dip to around 66 degrees.

The rain is projected to move out of the area during the evening on Friday as precipitation chances lower to 30%.
