PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Parts of the West Valley are seeing wind and dust picking up on Wednesday evening as it makes its way into central Phoenix. The National Weather Service in Phoenix issued a dust advisory, which expired at 6:15 p.m. Viewers in Arizona’s Family First Alert Weather Facebook group shared videos of their windmills starting to spin as wind picked up in Buckeye. Some Surprise residents also saw a dust storm blow through, followed by lightning.

Meanwhile, in northern Arizona, one viewer shared photos of a dust storm rolling into Tuba City. Arizona Department of Transportation also posted that U.S. 89 north of Flagstaff was partially closed because of water in the road caused by burn scar flooding.
