Keep an umbrella and jacket nearby. It’s going to be a wet week with high temperatures in the 60s and lows in the 50s, according to the National Weather Service.

The first of four storms hit the Valley Monday and will continue through Friday. The biggest storm is forecast to hit the area late Thursday and into Friday with an expected three inches of rain, said Keith Kincaid, a meteorological technician for the Phoenix bureau of the National Weather Service.

"The jet stream has dropped to the southwest, bringing all the storms to the Pacific, right over California and Arizona," Kincaid said Monday. "This is only the beginning of what’s going to be a wet week."

With the rain will come some "urban and small stream flood issues," meaning normally dry washes will fill up, Kincaid said.

Monday only had between .05 and .10 inches of rain, although about a half an inch of rain is expected to drop through Tuesday morning, he said.

A half an inch to an inch is expected to fall Tuesday to Wednesday morning, gearing up for the big Thursday to Friday storm, Kincaid said.

The Valley may also have possible thunderstorms Tuesday and Thursday evenings, he said.
