PHOENIX -- Brief overnight showers brought an end to the Valley's fifth-longest dry streak.

After 124 days of no measurable rain at Sky Harbor, 0.01 inch fell just after midnight. That brings us to exactly an inch for the year so far, which is still more than two inches below average.

There is a 20 percent chance for more showers and thunderstorms in the Valley this afternoon and evening. Slow-moving storms could produce heavy rain and localized flooding. The Valley is expected to warm up to about 102 degrees today.

Tomorrow will bring about the same storm chances and a warmer afternoon high of 105 degrees.

Storm chances continue into next week as our typical July monsoon pattern continues. Overnight lows will stay warm in the 80s and afternoon highs will range from about 104 to 107 all week.
