The forecast predicts rain for northern Arizona in the next couple of days and into the weekend.

With wildfire-caused burn scars in the area, residents should stay on guard. Lamont Bain is with the National Weather Service.

“Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll see the coverage of showers and storms diminish but then as we venture into the remainder of the work week and into the weekend, those rain chances are going to come way way back up," Bain said.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix area will see chances of rain increase throughout the week. Concerns include sporadic flash flooding and gusty winds.
