The article reports a 50 percent chance of rain Monday.
The rain will drop temperatures to a high of 59 degrees, said Mike Bruce, National Weather Service meteorologist, lower than the normal temperature of approximately 68 degrees that would be expected at this time of year.
The Monday showers follow a wet a weekend during which Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport reported 1.06 inches of rain Saturday, enough to break a 0.43-inch record set in 1985 on the same day, the article said.
The Arizona Department of Transportation reported roadways were temporarily closed due to flooding Saturday but open again by the evening.
Power was lost throughout the Phoenix valley, leaving approximately 1,500 people in Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale and Mesa in the dark as rain continued to fall throughout Saturday.
Drivers in Phoenix are subject to Arizona's Stupid Motorist Law, meaning any driver who attempts to drive on or through a flooded roadway and needs rescuewill be billed for the cost to the city.
