PHOENIX — The monsoon is bringing a week of storms and flooding to Arizona.

High pressure to our east is allowing abundant monsoon moisture to flow in, while also taking the edge off of our extreme heat.

Daytime highs will only reach the upper 90s to low 100s this week, putting us several degrees below normal for this time of year.

Storm chances are now at 40 percent each day through the rest of the week in the Phoenix metro.

Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain, so the risk for flooding is high.

Flood Watches are now in effect through Friday morning for most of Arizona, including right here in the Valley.

Gusty winds, lightning and heavy downpours are the main threats with any storms that move through, but there's also an increased risk for flash flooding near our wildfire burn scars.

Storm chances will continue through the weekend and into early next week.
