PHOENIX — The Valley received rain over the weekend, and the early part of the week could be even wetter.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport saw 0.03 inches on Sunday, while parts of the state saw as much as a full inch up in areas such as Payson and Sedona.

“We’re looking at potentially two rounds of rain as we head into the latter portions of this weekend and early into next week,” Ryan Worley, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Phoenix, told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Friday morning.

Sunday received the first wave, with cloudy skies and showers through much of the day.

How much rain could Phoenix continue to see going into Monday?

The NWS said most of the coming rain will start midday Monday and continue into Tuesday.

Phoenix and surrounding areas could reach up to a full inch while areas to the southeast — including Casa Grande and into Tucson — could reach 1.5 inches.

The precipitation stems from what the NWS is calling “a series of weather disturbances interacting with abundant humidity aloft.” Those high clouds helped to bring the temperatures back down into the low 50s.
