Hot and humid with chance of storms

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Monsoon moisture returns to Arizona, boosting chances for more widespread thunderstorms today. 

After a calm couple of days, the high country has a good chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms today. 

Valley highs will top out near 109 today, and afternoon heating and abundant moisture in our atmosphere means a chance for thunderstorms in the Valley, too. Strong, gusty winds and blowing dust are also a threat. 

Tuesday could be an active day, as well, then we're in for a break from the storms for the second half of the week.  

That familiar rumble of thunder is back in the forecast next weekend.
