PHOENIX - Another round of storms moved through the Valley on Sunday night kicking up dust and light scattered showers mainly in the West Valley.

Stormy weather is probably not what visitors in town for the Major League Baseball game were expecting as festivities kick into high gear.

Thousands of visitors are expected to visit downtown Phoenix over the next few days for a list of baseball events.

More storms could move through the area late Sunday night.

On Monday there is a 20 percent chance of showers, but with all the cloud cover, temperatures are forcasted to be just below 100 degrees giving some relief from hot triple-digit weather.

For the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, expect temperatures to top out at around 103 degrees. The partly cloudy conditions should provide some relief from the heat to those fans lining the downtown streets for the All-Star Game parade.

By mid-week hot conditions return as the cloud cover moves out of the state.

In the areas north and south of Phoenix, rain meant flooding for areas recently burned in the Monument and Wallow fires. More rain is in the forecast for these parts of the state.
