PHOENIX -- After three consecutive days of storms in the Valley, the monsoon is about to take a brief break.  Look for a Wednesday afternoon high of 106 degrees and a slight chance of storms.  While the Rim Country, the higher elevations, are expected to be active today, there's only a 10 percent chance of Valley storms.

Those chances decrease even more over the next few day as dry air works its way into the state.  The deserts will stay dry Thursday through Saturday, and storm chances are fairly low, even in the high country.  Slightly warmer temperatures and less humid conditions are also expected.

Monsoon moisture is set to return toward the second half of the weekend as high pressure repositions itself over the Four Corners. This brings a return of monsoon moisture and storm chances Sunday and into early next week, along with a warm-up.
