PHOENIX -- After the coolest Fourth of July on record in the Valley in 100 years, we're left with a steamy fifth of July ahead. 

Morning temperatures Thursday were in the 70s, but relative humidity was near 75 percent. Although humidity will drop throughout the day, it will still feel pretty muggy out there as afternoon temperatures head toward a high of about 100 degrees. 

No more rain is in the forecast for the Valley today, but there's about a 30-percent chance of storms in the higher elevations to our north and east.

The monsoon flow of moisture won't be very strong over the next couple of days, but set to return by the middle of next week. 

There will be a slight chance of storms over the weekend with highs near 109 degrees, but temperatures drop and storm chances increase by Tuesday and Wednesday.
