Phoenix weather: More monsoon stormsPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- While the rest of the country transitions to fall, Arizona remains locked in the mugginess of the monsoon season.
Storms hit parts of the Valley Tuesday, with rainfall amounts of near 0.33 inch recorded in parts of Scottsdale and Central Phoenix. Strong winds also knocked down a couple of power poles and trees in parts of Phoenix and the West Valley.
By Wednesday morning, all was quiet across the Valley and state, but we were left with pretty high humidity levels.
Valley lows dipped to the upper 70s and low 80s, but relative humidity was near 60 percent. Afternoon highs should top out near 102 degrees with a slight chance of storms today and tonight.
With a very moist and unstable air mass lingering over the state, storm chances continue for Arizona for the entire next week.
Meanwhile, afternoon highs should top out just below average for this time of year, near just 100 degrees by the weekend. Overnight lows should stay in the upper 70s and low 80s, but high humidity levels will likely continue.
