PHOENIX -- A series of storms continued to bring lots of clouds and scattered showers to Arizona on Wednesday, but not much in the way of measurable precipitation around metro Phoenix.

The chance for rain is going to stay in the forecast through Thursday, with a decent chance for showers during the morning hours.

The latest forecast models indicating the Thursday morning potential for rain is running about 70 percent or more, and we could see around half an inch of rain. It’s looking like the rain could be moving in around 4 a.m. and hanging around through the morning commute.

Temperatures continue to be very mild as the clouds and storm are coming from the subtropics. Even with the chance for showers, highs should make it into the 70s around metro Phoenix on Thursday, and we’ll see a bit of sunshine by the afternoon.

At this point, the weekend looks quiet and dry.
