It won't be a downpour, but Valley residents can expect to see some rain throughout the day before temperatures begin to warm up later this week.

Some spotty raindrops fell throughout the Valley on Sunday with some showers expected throughout Monday, the first time Valley residents have seen rain in nearly a month, since Dec. 18, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Keith Kincaid said on Monday that this week Valley residents can expect to see highs in the low 70s with lows in the mid 40s during the week, following a normal pattern.

"It's going to be a gradual warm-up," Kincaid said. "The storm system will come from California and into Arizona, generating a few one-hundredths of an inch of rain."

On Tuesday, the high is expected to be 66 degrees, but by Friday, highs will reach into the low 70s before the Valley will experience another slight cool-down.

On Saturday, a storm system will be coming in from the west coast bringing a 10 percent chance of rain with it and a 20 percent chance of rain Sunday with a high of 69.

"Other than a little bit of rain, it should be a pretty nice week," Kincaid said.
