PHOENIX — The monsoon is back in action across Arizona!

Watch out for heavy downpours, lightning and hail with any of the storms that move in, too. Flooding is also possible, especially near wildfire burn scars.

Here in the Valley, we'll see our next chance of storms overnight into Thursday morning.

As high pressure shifts east this weekend, more monsoon moisture will flow in and our chance for showers and thunderstorms across the state will ramp up even more.

Right now, we are tracking a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms in the Valley on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Temperatures will drop a few degrees by this weekend, but it still looks like triple digits are on tap across the Valley.

Early morning lows will cool into the low to mid 80s each day, which is right near our 30-year average for this time of year.
