The East Valley got drenched with over an inch of rain in some areas during a storm that hit Sunday, said the National Weather Service.
Mesa saw between 0.55 and 1.14 inches of rain in some parts and Apache Junction got between 0.59 and 0.91. Gilbert saw 0.75 near McQueen Rd. and Baseline Road., and Queen Creek got 0.6 inches near Queen Creek Road and Higley Road.
The system, which lingered into today, brought some lightning and even some hail in some parts of the Valley.
“It’s been pea sized,” said Valerie Meyers, a meteorologist.
The low temperature this morning was 47 degrees and the high temperature so far was 57.
Tuesday’s high temperatures should be in the upper 50s to low 60s, with overnight lows from the high 40s to low 50s.
Wednesday’s highs are expected to range between the upper 50s and low 60s, with overnight lows from the high 30s to low 40s.
Another system heading south toward Arizona is expected to bring very light rain — between one- to two-tenths of an inch — by Tuesday afternoon.
Another system on its heels is expected to also bring minor amounts of precipitation to the Valley on Wednesday.
“The Wednesday system might just have a wee bit more moisture,” Meyers said.
