PHOENIX – The seesaw weather that has marked the month of March in metro Phoenix will take another downward tilt early this week, forecasters said.

After weekend temperatures that reached the mid-90s, the National Weather Service said Tuesday’s high was expected to be about 70 degrees with a 90% chance of rain.

Sandwiched around that is a warm, breezy Monday at 85 degrees and 78 on Wednesday before a return to 80 degrees or more starting Thursday.

A large storm system coming in from the west is bringing rain and wind, Phoenix weather bureau meteorologist Chris Kuhlman told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Monday.

“It will be weakening as it comes in, but it’s the best storm system that we’ve seen in at least a month,” he said.

Showers could fall Monday night, but the most action likely will happen Tuesday between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m., Kuhlman predicted.

“Maybe a few storms might be able to pop out some small hail in the afternoon,” he said.

Anywhere from one-tenth to one-quarter inches of rain could fall across the Valley, the majority of it likely in the east and north.

“All in all, just brief heavy rain with thunderstorms and lightning,” Kuhlman said.

KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Jim Cross contributed to this report.
