PHOENIX -- The chances for Monsoon thunderstorms are looking better the next several days around the Valley, but it’s not a lock that we’ll get rain.
This is the time of year when the Monsoon begins winding down. That doesn’t mean we can’t get severe weather. But it does mean on average, September is a much quieter Monsoon month when compared to August.
We’re expecting highs right around 100 degrees for the next couple of days with overnight lows in the 80s.
A small isolated thunderstorm rolled through Central Phoenix on Tuesday evening and produced some steady rain.
The rain slowed traffic on SR 51 at about 5:45 p.m. But on the bright side, many people were able to enjoy the sight of a beautiful rainbow.
The biggest cluster of storms was northwest of the Valley on Tuesday evening. There was also a strong batch of storms south of Casa Grande.
