PHOENIX -- The National Weather Service in Phoenix issued a Blowing Dust Advisory until 7 p.m. Thursday evening for Maricopa and Pinal counties.

The wind was blowing and dust was swirling in the Phoenix area for a few hours Thursday evening.

There were no reports of any significant problems due to the monsoon activity but some traffic slowing on the freeways during the evening rush hour was likely due, in part, to the weather.
