PHOENIX — The monsoon is back in action across Arizona bringing strong winds, blowing dust, lightning and rain!

Storms chances will continue each day through the weekend as monsoon moisture continues to flow in.

Here in the Valley, our best bets will be Thursday and Sunday.

In anticipation of blowing dust Thursday afternoon, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued a High Pollution Watch.

If you see dust blowing in, stay inside until after it clears. Breathing it in has been linked to cases of Valley fever, which could cause long-term health issues.

Ozone pollution will climb by the end of the week and could reach unhealthy levels, too. Ozone High Pollution Watches are now in effect on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Daily highs will peak between 104 and 109 degrees across the Valley with early morning lows in the 80s.
