PHOENIX -- Monday morning brought a wet treat to the Valley: Sprinkles! 

A band of light showers moved in from the south and pushed through the Valley during the early morning hours. It didn't last long, and by the afternoon we should see partly sunny skies and a high of about 108 degrees. 

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms today, but a better chance for blowing dust as storms could develop in the deserts to our south. 

As monsoon moisture increases, there is a better chance of storms statewide, including in the Valley Tuesday, and especially Wednesday. 

As humidity increases, look for temperatures to drop. Tuesday's high should be around 103 degrees, while Wednesday only brings double digits with a forecast high of 95 degrees. 

Although drier air is forecast to move into the state Thursday and Friday, there's at least a slight chance of storms Thursday through the weekend.
