After a sunny Wednesday, people woke up with gloomy skies and rain for their morning commutes across much of the Valley. 

The amount of rain expected isn't too severe. The National Weather Service says most lower desert areas will get between a quarter-inch and three-quarters of an inch in rain through Friday. Some areas could see as much as one inch.

The rain around the state is a result of a storm system that has been moving through Southern California. 

With the rain comes wet roads and drivers are reminded, especially during high volume times like the morning and afternoon commutes, to turn on their headlights and drive with caution as some areas could become slippery. 

Areas north of the Valley, especially on the way to Flagstaff are experiencing slippery roads as the rain and snow mixes, so keep that in mind for any weekend trips north. 

While rainfall is expected to continue this afternoon and evening and periodically through Friday afternoon, rain totals aren't expected to cause flooding. 

When on the roads this evening and for tomorrow morning's commute, give yourself more time to get to your destination as slowdowns were common on I-10 and I-17 this morning and are expected this afternoon. 

The sun is expected to be back out this weekend on Saturday and Sunday with high temperatures rising a couple of degrees into the high 60s.
