PHOENIX -- What was expected to be a very active monsoon day started off pretty quiet in the Valley.  Moisture continues to stream north from Hurricane Marie and a low pressure system continues to move our way from the north.  Despite these factors, early morning rain that was forecast had not materialized. 

There is still a 40 percent chance for showers in the Valley today, mainly during the late morning and afternoon hours.  The National Weather Service cancelled the Flash Flood Watch for the Valley and for much of Maricopa County.  It remains in effect for much of the rest of the state today.  Widespread and possibly heavy rain is still forecast for Northern Arizona today. 

Valley residents can expect a chance of rain today under mostly cloudy skies and an afternoon high temperature in the upper 90s. There is a continued slight chance for storms tonight and tomorrow before dry and warmer weather arrives for the second half of the week. 

Labor Day Weekend is also expected to be warm and dry, with highs near 105 degrees.
