PHOENIX — A storm system brought rain and wind to various areas in metro Phoenix on Monday evening.

North Phoenix and parts of Scottsdale recorded 0.04 inches of rain as of 5:30 p.m., according to Maricopa County Flood Control District rain gauges.

The storm also brought wind gusts of upwards of 30-40 mph and some blowing dust in areas, according to the National Weather Service, with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport recording a wind gust of 48 mph.

Showers were likely to continue through the evening with rainfall amounts predicted to be between a tenth and quarter of an inch, according to the National Weather Service, with higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

The wet weather is expected to continue in the morning and early afternoon hours on Tuesday before moving out of the area in the evening.

The storm also dropped temperatures in the Valley following a weekend that saw the mercury reach the mid-90s.

The high on Monday was recorded at 83 degrees, but the National Weather Service said the storm brought temperatures down to 68 degrees.

A high of 69 degrees is expected on Tuesday before increasing to 78 degrees with sunny skies on Wednesday.
