Like last week, rain showers are expected this week with another warm-up going into the weekend, the National Weather Service says.

A strong Pacific storm system traveling east from California is causing a 60 percent chance of rain over the Valley beginning Monday evening and expected to last through late Tuesday morning before it moves on to New Mexico, according to Keith Kincaid, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

The showers, which be spread throughout the East Valley, are predicted to bring one-tenth to one-fourth of an inch of rain and cause temperatures to drop into the low 40s throughout the night.

However, Kincaid said of the rain, "This looks like it might be the last shot for a little while, at least for 10 days."

After Tuesday, a warm-up will begin with a high of 67 degrees on Wednesday, a high of 72 on Thursday and 75 on Friday and Saturday.

The highs in the low 60s the next two days are slightly lower than normal, as the high temperatures normally average 68 this time of year, Kincaid said.
