Organized storms are more likely later today, possibly lasting until the evening hours, and we can expect lightning and strong winds with the storms. The high temperature on Monday is expected to be 97 degrees.


A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 5 a.m. Tuesday due to the threat of localized flooding because of slow-moving storms interacting with our high monsoon moisture.

There is also a good chance of rain on Tuesday. The high temperature for Tuesday is expected to be 94 degrees.,

The rain is expected to mostly disappear, at least for a little while, on Wednesday and a high temperature of 102 degrees is expected.

Temps will continue to go up as we approach the weekend but the rain could make a return on Sunday.
