More rain on the way!
We have already received .95" of rain from this storm at Sky Harbor, some areas here in the Valley are over an inch.
More rain is on the way for Thursday in Arizona and some of it could be heavy.
Several short-term flood alerts were issued Wednesday for areas surrounding Oak Creek and in the Tonto Basin. Both are areas where more than an inch of rain has fallen and creeks and streams are rising.
We have a flash flood watch for Thursday into Friday. We will see the heaviest rain later this afternoon, evening and into the overnight hours.
Look for some road issues, due to the washes flowing.
Storms that do develop this afternoon could produce hail and some damaging winds.
Lingering rain remains for Friday, but the intensity should die down.
Dry weather finally returns for the weekend, with forecast highs in the mid 70s around town. Another storm system early next week will bring the return of rain chances and cooler temperatures.
