Storm chances increase across Arizona

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – Prepare for an active period of weather across Arizona with rain, wind, lightning and possible flooding ahead!

Across the state, we are seeing isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms to start the day. A few places in the valley received measurable precipitation this morning. We are calling for a ‘first alert’ weather day on Sunday and Monday as the chance of a storm increases. Currently, the storm risk is around 60% Sunday evening and Monday.

Heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds are possible, as well as blowing dust and localized flooding. Temperatures will finally start to drop, but the monsoon humidity is rising, so while we will see some relief today, it will still be very hot, humid and sticky.

We expect a high of 109 for your Saturday afternoon, still a few degrees above average for this time of year. Look for a 20% chance of thunderstorms later tonight. Temperatures will continue to drop with a high of 105 on Sunday and just 97 on Monday. Stick with the Arizona family to stay informed during this busy weather weekend!
