PHOENIX -- There will be a continuing break in the monsoon through Thursday with decreased chances of showers and thunderstorms.

Also, temperatures will continue their upward trend, and highs in the 110-115 range will be common across the deserts through Thursday.

A return to a more typical monsoon flow is expected late Friday into the weekend as showers and thunderstorms are once again forecast across the region. 

Monsoon moisture is expected to creep back into the area on Friday. Thunderstorms will be on the increase through the weekend.

Right now, Sunday looks to be an active thunderstorm day across Arizona. However, with the chances for thunderstorms on Saturday, too, we could see another weekend with storms around the Valley both days.

Looking down the road to next week, a southwest flow is expected to return to the area Monday and Tuesday pushing much of the moisture out of Arizona. That will result in temperatures headed back up and a reduction in the number of thunderstorms.
