PHOENIX — Monsoon 2022 is bringing more storms to Arizona today.

Here in the Valley, we'll see another slight chance for storms this evening.

Watch out for gusty winds, blowing dust, lightning, and brief downpours with any of the storms that move in.

Heavy downpours and flash flooding near our wildfire burn scars have been the biggest threats across the high country and that risk will continue through the weekend.

As high pressure remains near the Four Corners this weekend, temperatures will continue to top out above 110 degrees and monsoon storm chances will stay in the forecast.

With Valley highs hitting 113 or 114 this weekend, the Phoenix Metro Area is now under an Excessive Heat Warning from 10 a.m. Saturday until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Those days will be ABC15 Weather Action Days as a reminder to take action to keep yourself and your family safe in this heat. Drink more water than usual and limit your time outside during the day.

We're also tracking air quality issues as ozone pollution reaches unhealthy levels over the next couple of days.

An Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect across the Valley through Sunday. If you have any respiratory conditions, like asthma or COPD, limit your time outside or you may have difficulty breathing.
