PHOENIX — Monsoon 2022 has been bringing gusty winds, blowing dust, lightning and pockets of heavy rain across Arizona.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours.

Humidity will stay high and temperatures will stay hot.

Valley highs will top out between around 105 or 106 over the next several days.

Morning lows will only cool into the mid to upper 80s each day, so we are not expecting much relief overnight.

At this point, it looks like our monsoon activity will wind down by the holiday weekend and we're looking storm-free in the Valley through the 4th of July.

Our air quality will get worse by the weekend, though.

Ozone pollution could reach unhealthy levels, so an Ozone High Pollution Watch is in effect on Saturday and Sunday. If you have COPD, asthma or other respiratory conditions you may want to limit your time outside or you could have difficulty breathing.
