PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A majority of northern Arizona continues to be under a Flood Watch through Sunday morning. The watch includes the Flagstaff area, where we have seen a lot of flooding, especially near the burn scar areas.

Thunderstorm chances continue throughout the weekend, with the biggest threat being heavy rain, leading to the possibility of flash flooding. The storms quickly moved into the Valley just before 4 pm, first hitting areas like Casa Grande, San Tan Valley, and Queen Creek. Another cell has developed in the central Phoenix area, moving up the I-17. The strong wind and rain have caused multiple power outages. Just after 6 pm, SRP reported on its outage map that approximately 10,396 customers are without power Saturday evening. Most of the outages were concentrated around I-17 between Thomas and Northern in central Phoenix.

Temperatures look to jump to the triple digits Monday through Thursday. Another wave of monsoonal moisture will push in by the weekend, upping our storm chances while also dropping temperatures into the 90s again.
