Storms could make Monday messyPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- After an active Saturday evening that included a massive dust storm and drenching rain in the Valley, followed by a quiet Sunday, back-to-work Monday is expected to get a little messy.
Moisture from former hurricane Norbert continues to pump into Arizona. This combined with a few impulses should produce thunderstorms across the Valley Monday morning during the commute.
These storms could be slow movers and may drop a lot of rain at once, which would create ponding on roadways. Other threats from these storms include the potential for damaging winds and lightning. Storm chances remain elevated through Tuesday for the Valley.
The heaviest rain is expected in the high country during this period.
Daytime high temperatures in the Phoenix-metro should only top out in the low to mid-90s for the first half of the week.
Toward the end of the week, conditions will dry out and temperatures will heat back up in the Phoenix-metro to the low 100s into the weekend.
