PHOENIX — It was a stormy Friday evening for parts of the Valley.

We saw gusty winds, lightning, heavy downpours and flooding.

We'll start to dry things out on Saturday, but there will still be a slight chance of isolated storms in the higher terrain.

As high pressure builds in over the weekend, temperatures will get hotter.

Expect highs in the low 100s Saturday and Sunday across the Valley with more triple digits next week, too.

Thunderstorm chances will return toward the middle of next week as another storm system approaches.

So, we may get more rain across Arizona before the monsoon season officially ends on Friday, September 30th.

Stay tuned for details as we get closer.
