The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch in parts of Arizona until 10 p.m. A blowing dust advisory was issued until 8 p.m. 

Some light rain also pushed through the Superstitions and Apache Junction.

As we head into the overnight hours, storm chance will continue. Severe weather conditions could come in the form of likely damaging winds, cloud-to-ground lightning, tree fires or moderate isolated flooding.

The fuel for severe weather late Saturday and into Sunday morning would be from the thunderstorm complex moving through northern Mexico into southeastern Arizona.
