PHOENIX — The monsoon is back in action this week!

Heavy rain and flooding have been impacting parts of our state each day and more is on the way.

The Valley, and much of central and southern Arizona, is under a Flash Flood Watch through 5 p.m. Sunday.

There's also a risk for severe, damaging winds and blowing dust with storms that develop on Friday.

Another disturbance moving through northern Mexico will provide the trigger needed to get storms going across Arizona through the weekend and into next week.

Here in the Valley, our highest storm chances will be Friday night into Saturday and again early next week.

Heavy rain and flash flooding will continue to be the main threats with any storms that develop, especially around our wildfire burn scars.

While the humidity may be uncomfortable, temperatures have been well below normal thanks to all of this moisture, clouds and daily storms.

Valley highs will continue to top out in the mid to upper 90s each day through the weekend and for most of next week, too.
